Hi, did you see the Japanese Cranes at the Kushiro Shitsugen National Park when you were there? (or anywhere else around that area). I'm planning a trip there around this time of year & wondering if those birds will be around as I know it's not really the right season. Thanks. Eva
Apologies for the late reply. We did, but only one, while we were on the ferry in Lake Akan. We were surprised we did not see more, but its definitely worth a visit.
