This is a technically easy but remote wetland canoe route on the Bekanbeushi River (別寒辺牛川) in eastern Hokkaido. Wending its way through the expansive Bekanbeushi wetlands (別寒辺牛湿原), you'll see red-crowned tancho cranes, Hokkaido native deer, white-tailed eagles, and a plethora of other rare wildlife. With no roads running parallel to the forested upper section of the route, there's a real sense of escape from humanity. The flow is gentle enough to allow paddling upstream, so more experienced paddlers can extend the route to a solid daytrip into even more seldom-visited corners of this slice of eastern Hokkaido.
