I have also seen "Kushiro Marsh"

In eastern Hokkaido, Kushiro stretches out right to the north of Kushiro. This is a huge marsh with an overall area of 183 square kilometers, and was the first Japanese marshland registered under the Ramsar Convention on wetlands. Two thousand varieties of animals and plants live here, including Hokkaido deer and the white-tailed sea eagle. In summer, all sorts of wild flowers bloom, while in winter the Japanese crane, a designated special natural monument, flies in.
