鯉が窪湿原 Koigakubo-shitugen Koigakubo Marsh

Jp En

In the northeastern part of the Kibi Plateau, at the top end of Koigakubo Pond and at 550m above sea level, is a hidden spot where Japanese nature remains intact: this is Koigakubo Marsh.

Koigakubo Marsh is designated as a National Natural Treasure. The precious hygrophytes (plants that grow in moist habitats) that naturally grow here show that Japan was once linked to the landmass of continental Asia. Among the 380 types of hygrophytes growing here are Ogura-Sennou, Mikoshi-Giku, Bitchu-Fuuro, Ryu-Kinka.

The marsh is 3.6ha in area and a walking trail around it is 2.4km long. Some 20,000 people visit every year and are fascinated by the mysteriousness of the plant community here. Recently, there has been concern that these precious plants are endangered. The city of Niimi is now cooperating with the Agency for Cultural Affairs to research, protect and manage the marsh and its flora.

あしつき公園 Ashitsuki-kouen Ashitsuki Park

Jp En

Ashitsuki Park is located in Takaoka City, Toyama prefecture. It was selected as one of the 100 Homes for Life by the Natural Protection Division of the Environment Agency. This selection is aimed at the protection and recovery of small familiar animals and their living environment.

The protected living things in Ashitsuki Park are the Genji-firefly and the Heike-firefly. Since Showa 46, Nakata Elementary School and the Nakata District Protection Association have carried out protection activities, which have been highly valued.

In olden times, the firefly was loved as a feature of early summer, but as the water quality of the streams that the firefly larvae live in gets dirtier and the waterside environment changes, so the situation gets worse and it becomes more difficult to see fireflies. In this park, however, you can see the fireflies' bright lights in June, which let us know that summer is coming.
