On this experience we’ll go canoeing and ice fishing in the Kushiro Marsh. In the morning, we will canoe into the marshlands in search of white tailed eagles, Steller's sea eagles, and other beautiful winter wildlife. We will then go ice fishing, where we will drill holes in the frozen lake with an ice drill and fish for wakasagi. The wakasagi will be grilled on the spot. A warm lunch cooked in a dutch oven is also included on the tour.
