Mokeuninuma Lake

From parking, you go down stairs and then find a straight boardwalk surrounded by Sakhalin spruce wetland forest up to Mokeuninuma Lake. You can watch Siberian Rubythroat, Eastern crowned willow warbler, Long-tailed Rosefinch, Siberian Stonechat and Gray’s grasshopper warbler in May to July. In June, Black-browed reed-warbler and Oriental Cuckoo sing at the top of Sakhalin spruce, and there are Marsh Tits and Japanese Tits at the middle of the tree. White-tailed Eagle may pass through the sky.
