釧路・根室観光案内 | Kushiro & Nemuro Travel

夕日が美しい港町、根釧台地の大規模な酪農地帯、広漠とした湿原に舞う丹頂鶴、そして最果ての雰囲気漂う半島と岬…。釧路・根室地方には道東のイメージにぴったりな風景が待ち受ける。

気候は一年を通して冷涼で、春夏は曇天と濃霧がしばしば空を覆う一方、秋冬は乾燥した晴天の日が続く。新鮮な海の幸と濃厚な味わいの乳製品は是非とも試してみたい。交通至便な釧路は道東観光の拠点に最適である。

These two neighboring regions from Kushiro Shitsugen National Park to the Nemuro Peninsula contains wilderness wetlands, brackish lakes and scenic peninsulas. It is cool climate and foggy in summer. Atmospheric fishing towns and rustic dairy farms exist side by side, where you can explore these destinations from the foodie port town of Kushiro, de facto capital of Eastern Hokkaido.
