Flowing into the expansive tidal Furen Lake (風蓮湖), Furen River (風蓮川) teems with native Hokkaido wetland wildlife. From boisterous human-sized red-crested cranes, miniature iridescent kingfishers, to curious Hokkaido ezo deer, it should be on all paddlers to-do list. The take-out indicated here on Lake Furen requires impeccable navigation skills, so we very highly recommend pre-loading maps onto a smartphone or similar device, and make full use of GPS. For a stress-free paddle, time this trip to coincide with high tide. See the full route overview at Hokkaido Wilds: https://hokkaidowilds.org/water/lower-furen-river
