Trains carrying coal and cargo have run on this road, supporting people's lives. Look for the remains of railroad tracks along the bike path.

The exhilarating riding experience while enjoying the diverse scenery of wetlands, countryside, and mountain forests is the unique charm of the Kushiro Akan Bicycle Route.

Diverse scenery

Right next to the Showa Rest Area, there is a tree lined with Yachidamo, the representative tree of Kushiro Marsh. You can feel the history of developing the wetlands.

Tree-lined road that feels pioneering

If you listen closely, you can hear not only the murmur of the river, but also the voices of wild birds such as the Great Sandpiper and the Black-bellied Warbler. Of course, you may also see red-crowned cranes!

Yachibouzu, with its unique appearance resembling a shaved head, is a work of nature's art formed by sedges and other plants pushing up their roots over the years!

Let's run!

The Kushiro Akan Bicycle Road, commonly known as the "Wetland Dream Road," is a 25.5km bicycle path that connects Showa, Kushiro City, and Akan Town, Kushiro City.

There are many attractions in the area surrounding the bicycle path, including the Kushiro City Wetland Observation Deck, Hokuto Ruins, Kushiro City Wetland Observation Deck, and the roadside station Akan Tancho no Sato.

This is a recommended area where you can enjoy a whole day of pottering.
