塘路湖 / Lake Touro


Lake Touro (Shibecha Town) is a freshwater lake in Kushiro-Shitsugen National Park. The name originates from a word from the Ainu language; Toh means a lake and Oro means a place. The lake itself and the surrounding area are designated as a wildlife sanctuary. Various birds, such as the white-tailed eagle and grey heron have made their homes there. The white-tailed eagle is on the red list of endangered animals. In winter, the surface of the lake freezes, and fishing for wakasagi (pond smells) becomes a popular activity. A hole is drilled through the ice, enabling a fishing line to be suspended into the water below.
