Plan description

It is a canoe experience of about 9 kilometers on the Kushiro River, which flows through the Kushiro Marsh. The meeting place is JR Senmo Line, Hosooka Station. This course starts from Lake Toro and goes down to Hosooka Canoe Port. As the name of the plan suggests, it is a place with a lot of trees even in the wetlands, and it is a course with the most wild animals. It is surrounded by deep green in spring, green in summer, and colored leaves in autumn. Of course, the guide will ride with you, so please leave the operation of the canoe to us. We also have a Kushiro Wetland long course of about 17 km that combines the forest course and the wilderness course! ~Experience Flow~ (For the 8:00 course) 8:00 Gather in front of Hosooka Station on the JR Senmo Line Please be at Hosooka Station at the start time of the tour. (If you are late, please contact us.) When we gather, we will park your car at the nearby Hosooka Canoe Port and drive to Toro Station. (Reception will be done inside the train) 8:20 Arrive at JR Senmo Line Toro Station When you arrive at Toro Station, go to the toilet and move to the starting point, Lake Toro. 8:40 Canoe preparation, safety talk When you arrive at Lake Toro, prepare for canoeing and give a safety explanation for canoeing. 8:50 Departure! When you're ready, let's go! If you wish, we will also take a commemorative photo here during the experience. 10:20 Arrival at Hosooka Canoe Port! Canoe experience for about 1 hour and a half. Once you get off the canoe, you will be disbanded after taking photos.

A course with many trees and many encounters with wild animals!

Most of the 9km course is surrounded by trees. There are many opportunities to see wild animals such as Yezo deer resting under trees and white-tailed eagles hunting river fish from treetops. (Not 100% visible)

You might be able to see JR local trains and the Kushiro Shitsugen Norokko from a canoe!

There is a point where the train passes by the river, so depending on the timing, you can enjoy the train running through the wetlands from a canoe. People often wave to us from the train. It's an irresistible moment for those who like trains!

Plan attractions

プランの魅力 Kushiro river rafting, which is called the mecca of canoeing! の画像

Kushiro river rafting, which is called the mecca of canoeing! The Kushiro River flows through Kushiro Shitsugen National Park. An area where the original appearance of the river remains, with few artificial objects such as bank protection work. The erosion and sedimentation of the river slowly changed the shape of the river, and even now the meandering of the Kushiro River is changing. Powered boats are not allowed here, so only rowing canoes are allowed here!

プランの魅力 This course has a lot of wild animals! の画像

This course has a lot of wild animals! The Kushiro Wetland is famous for wild animals such as Yezo deer, white-tailed eagles, and red-crowned cranes. From the top of the canoe, animals are less cautious and there are many opportunities to see nature. (It is not 100% visible) Keep your distance and pass quietly so that the animals do not feel stressed!

プランの魅力 After canoeing, go to the most recommended Hosooka Observatory! の画像

After canoeing, go to the most recommended Hosooka Observatory! Hosooka Observatory is the most recommended observatory where you can see the Kushiro Marsh from a hill! It takes about 10 minutes by car from Hosooka Canoe Port, the goal point. After canoeing, it is recommended to go straight to Hosooka Observatory!

Selling points regarding safety

I remember all the dangerous places such as fallen trees on the river descent every day, and I follow a safe course. The day before the tour, be sure to check the weather (wind direction, wind force, etc.) before the tour, and do it on a safe and reasonable course. If it is determined that the wind is dangerous, the tour may be canceled or the course may be changed to a course with relatively calm wind. After that, according to age and physical strength, we will do a tour so that it is not unreasonable.
