Kushiro Shitsugen Norokko Train (Hokkaido)

The Norokko Train is a train that takes you from Kushiro Station to Touro Station with a view of the Kushiro Marsh. Unlike the observatory, the train runs close to the marshland, so you can enjoy it in a different way. The train stops at Higashi Kushiro, Kushiro Shitsugen and Hosooka stations along the way, and ends at Touro. If you want to enjoy the journey by train only, you can take the train bound for Kushiro Station departing from Touro Station about 20 minutes later, which will take about two hours.
If you get off the train at Kushiro Shitsugen Station, you can walk to Hosooka Observatory in about 15 minutes.
