Sarobetsu Genya

Sarobetsu Genya information

Lonely Planet review

While technically part of Rishiri-Rebun-Sarobetsu National Park, these marshlands are best accessed from Wakkanai. Approximately 35km south of town, Sarobetsu Genya is full of colour every year, best in June and July, with dramatic wildflower blooms. Frequent futsū on the JR Sōya line run between Wakkanai and Toyotomi (¥900, 45 minutes). Toyotomi is connected to the park entrance by regular local buses (¥430, 15 minutes).
