Kushiro is a port city located on the Pacific coast in eastern Hokkaido, and boasts an abundance of fishery resources as well as distinct, world-class natural resources. Kushiro Marshland National Park is home to tancho red-crowned cranes, a protected species in Japan, and nearby Akan Mashu National Park features round marimo moss balls.
With a daily mean temperature of 22.9°C in August, the city is a cool, comfortable place to escape the summer heat, and the number of sports camps, university seminars and long term visitors has only increased in recent years.
The cluster of MICE facilities, hotels and shopping districts in the downtown area makes Kushiro a great place to hold a compact MICE.
