What people are saying:

There is a wetland in Doto Kushiro, Hokkaido, Japan, called Kushiro Wetland, where a river winds through it. The mountain is blocked by heavy snow in winter, and the viewing platform cannot be opened to the public. In summer, standing on the Hosooka Observation Deck in the Kushiro Marsh, the open wetland suddenly opens up, a lush scene. In addition to self-driving and chartered vehicles, tourists usually take JR regular trains to Kushiro Shitsugen Station, and then follow the signs to easily reach the Hosooka Observation Deck. Tickets are not charged and it is open for free.
