Unoike, Asahi Pond is a pond (lagoon) made by damming a river, a dunes made by the influence of winter's seasonal wind etc.These "lagoons" are recognized as spreading from the ocean through the sand dunes to the paddy field of the back trunk, showed various nature's appearance, and are valuable as a growing place for various animals and plants.Also, "lago" has long been an indispensable existence for people's life.
Prefectural Ogata Mizu and Mori Park are maintained as a place to learn nature while leaving precious nature of "lagoon".It is also being developed as a place to learn the history and culture developed in this "lagoon".
Currently, part of the “History zone” (5.55 ha) and “Wild bird observation zone” (11.2 ha 9.9 ha is the Wild Bird Conservation Area) will be opened, and bird watching, forest bathing and walks will be enjoyed.
