Shinsen Marsh Recreation Forest

Shinsen Marsh Recreation Forest

Shinsen Marsh is said to be the most beautiful marsh around Niseko. It is the biggest marsh in the area. It is located along Niseko Panorama Line (road 66), connecting Niseko, a famous ski resort and Iwanai-cho, a fishing town near the Sea of Japan.

There is a resting house with parking right in the middle of Niseko Panorama Line. Walk for 15-20 minutes on the wooden footpath and you’ll get to the marsh. The road is wide enough for people to pass each other. Although there are some ups and downs, the road is not steep and is pleasant to walk despite the long distance.

If you keep walking along the path the view of the marsh shall appears. Shinsen Marsh is surrounded by the tranquil atmosphere and alpine plants.

There is no time limit on visits to the swamp; however, be aware that from November till May the road is closed, so you only can visit in spring and autumn.
