Akan, Kushiro is a city in which you can thoroughly enjoy nature every season of the year. It is especially known as the wintering spot for the Japanese Red Crested Cranes, which are a Special Natural Monument.

In winter, when it is so cold outside that even your breath seems to freeze, the beautiful cranes can be seen dancing on the silvery-white fields.

Enjoy Akan, the city where you can truly get a feel for the great outdoors.
