Kushiro & Nemuro
These two neighboring regions from Kushiro Shitsugen National Park to the Nemuro Peninsula contains wilderness wetlands, brackish lakes and scenic peninsulas. Konsen Plateau is Japan’s top milk producing area and more than 200,000 cows (!) living here. It is cool climate and foggy in summer.
On the other hand, elegant tancho (Japanese cranes) dance on the sanctuaries during the sun-soaked winter. 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.
