Lake Kutcharo "A brackish lake where migratory birds gather"

Lake Kutcharo can be found near the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk and has a span of about 27 kilometers. The lake has a depth of about 25 meters at its deepest, and has brackish water as seawater flows in from the shore and mixes with the lake's fresh water. Every year over a thousand birds winter here. It was designated as a Ramsar site, as per the Ramsar Convention, in July, 1989.

"Doors to explore 'NIPPON'", a special program that showcases scenes hand-picked from NHK's "SHIN NIHON FUDOKI", a show that conveys the beautiful scenery and profound culture of Japan, is screened on five TV monitors installed in the departure area of Haneda Airport.
