A Paradise for Humans is a Paradise for Birds
>Hokkaido’s wilderness attracts not only people but also many birds, as they live in the nature comfortably. Bird watching has long been popular among many birds fans in Hokkaido. You can observe birds in many different places such as in the woods, near the lakes where swans rest on, and also wetlands or plains, where migratory birds are often seen. The combination of white snow-field and the subtle appearance of red-crowned cranes, registered as a special natural monument of Japan, perform a fancy courtship dance around Kushiro Shitsugen, creates a beautiful picture like a painting.
