The Kiritappu Wetland (霧多布湿原) is a large wetland area on the Pacific Ocean in far east Hokkaido. It's home to a vast variety of wildlife, including bears, eagles, and the red-crested tancho crane. Biwase River (琵琶瀬川) flows slowly through the wetland, allowing paddlers an intimate view into the heart of the marsh. Being close to the coast, birdwatchers will enjoy the river access to viewing of oyster-catchers and other marine birds too. Here, we outline the classic out-and-back route. You'll be paddling upstream on the return, but the flow is slow enough to keep it one of the most pleasant, easy-access wetland canoe trips in Hokkaido.
