Oze Marshland (尾瀬ヶ原 Oze-ga-hara?) is a high altitude marshland in the Oze National Park, Japan.

Approximately 8km² in size, the marshland is well known for the various species of plants, including the "mizu-bashō" (White Skunk Cabbage), "Nikkōkisuge" (yellow alpine lilies, Hemerocallis dumortieri var. esculenta) and "Watasuge" (Eriophorum vaginatum). The marshland is a popular hiking destination.
