Bird Hides in Nemuro

Bird Hides are the huts in which you can watch the wild birds. The concept of bird hides was born in U.K.. It is possible to enjoy birdwatching without scaring wild birds by hiding and staying in the hides. Since Nemuro is one of the best areas in Japan to watch wild birds and we would like many birdwatchers and people looking for sightseeing to enjoy the "year-round" birdwatching, there are several bird hides in Nemuro City. You can enter the hides without fee, and anyone is welcome to use the hides.


  • Please leave the hides after shutting all the windows.
  • Please bring the trashes with you. Don't leave them in the hides.
  • Bird hides are NOT the accomodations. Please do not stay in hides overnight.
  • No smoking in hides.
  • Some hides are locked due to prevention of crimes. Your understanding is highly appreciated.
