How would you like to canoe on the water of Kushiro river in wild woods?  You’ll feel and see the fresh green of spring, the sparkling water of summer, the colored leaves of autumn.  The river flows out from Lake Kusharo keeping nature untouched.  The silence on the water touches something in your heart and unifies you with Mother Nature.
Now canoeing is one of the very popular sports in Hokkaido.  Lake Kusharo and Kushiro River are respected as a Mecca by canoe people.  Please visit and find out how cool it is.
We have professional tour guides who instruct canoeing even if you are beginners.

Walking in the winter season
Winter! Everything is sleeping. The lake and woods are covered with snow and ice, animal foot prints, flying birds, wind ripples in the snow, Omiwatari or God trail, rime ice trees, that is what you find when you visit in the winter season.  You’ll find such quiet nature that you could never witness during the summer season.   Please come and feel another touch of the wild nature of winter

Note Omiwatari
The lake is frozen in winter.  Ice inflates in days and shrinks and breaks in nights.  Lake water comes in and makes thin ice plates.  When the temperature goes up in daytimes, the thin plate breaks due to pressure on both side, and then rises up.  This phenomenon happens every day and the people call it Omiwatari or God trail because of the wonder of nature.

Every year thousands of fishermen come and visit Lake Kusharu and the rivers around in order to experience dynamic fishing in great nature.  The earthquake in 1938 changed the water quality so that fish did not live for a long time in Lake Kusharo, but now 50 cm rainbow trout and other trout have come back.  The local residents tried water reforming and hatchling stock trials for a long time to make the lake better.  Every spring through autumn you can enjoy sport fishing in wild woods.

There has been no fishery since the Kusharo fishing union was dismissed in 1954. Now everyone can enjoy fishing freely. Some people catch female fish or more than needed, not all the fishermen do.  Please understand the situation and use good manners to help keep fish in the lake and rivers.  We’ll be very sorry if there are no fish in the lake again.
Teshikaga town people have been trying many things to keep fish in the lakes or nature habitat as it is advised by Hokkaido government, setting fishery with the city and establishing local fishing roles.Now we aim to follow the rules of Eco-Tourism set in April, 2008 in Japan. Please understand our wish to maintain the fish population and clean water for the next generations.  The following are our rules for fishermen to remember.

1) Please understand values of egglaying and young fish.
2) Please practice “Catch and release”
3) Please keep nature as it is
4) Please take back your own garbage and trash.
