The boardwalk was not in the best shape - some boards were unsteady and falling off. It is a 45 min walk approx, and it offers some nice views right at the top.

The itinerary boasted two thousand varieties of plants and animals including deer and sea eagle. We saw hardly any any flowers because of the time of year. We saw a few baby cicadas, some small birds, yet to be identified and very little else. There was a long walk with a suspension bridge and lots of steps up and down. Not suitable if you have knee or mobility problems.

Walk does have a lot of stairs going up and down. You can just do a short boardwalk if you don't feel too energetic. Vegetaion very nice and view over marshlands great.Did not see any wildlife though - except for hundreds of dragon flies.

Not a great deal to see and do inside but there are fantastic views over the marshland surrounding the building.

The boardwalk seems to disappear underfoot as it leads visitors away from the highway, across the former railway right-of-way and into a green "savannah" growing up through water, where the principal sound is the breeze whispering by your ears. Signage is instructive but not excessive, and the perspective of tall grasses and stunted trees seems to go on forever. It's best not to expect shows of Japanese Cranes or other wildlife, and to settle for the austere beauty of the vegetation. Sometimes one gets an unanticipated visit from the creatures that make their home here.
