Marshland sights in Japan
- Sort by:
While technically part of Rishiri-Rebun-Sarobetsu National Park, these marshlands (サロベツ原) are best accessed from Wakkanai. Approximately 35km south of town, Sarobetsu Genya is full of colour every spring, with dramatic blooms of rhododendrons, irises, lilies and many other types of flowers. 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).
