View the Red-Crowned Cranes in Kushiro Shitsugen National Park of East Hokkaido
The red-crowned cranes are Japan's iconic protected species that live in Kushiro Shitsugen National Park of East Hokkaido. The red-crowned crane was designated as a Special Natural Monument in 1952. From November to March, hundreds of wild red-crowned cranes can be seen at the Crane Observation Center, adjacent to Kushiro Akan International Crane Center (GRUS), depending on the weather and timing.
