Japanese cranes dancing and soaring in a winter wonderland

Up close guided tour of Kushiroshitsugen National Park's natural beauty

Majestic Japanese cranes soaring into the clear winter sky, before landing within the snowscape for their graceful mating dance.

A scene sure to enthrall any bird watcher or nature lover. From December to January, visitors can take a chartered tour of Kushiro Marsh in Hokkaido — an ancient wetland and food source for almost all Japan’s cranes — and appreciate these magnificent birds in their natural habitat, alongside stunning snowscapes and other natural and wildlife wonders .

If you’re staying in the Kushiro area, hotel pick-ups are available for even easier access to this unique experience.
