Sashimaki Wetland Mizubasho colony

刺巻湿原ミズバショウ群生地

Sashimaki Wetland is surrounded by a large alder forest. It is rare for white flowers to bloom all over the wetlands, and it is academically valuable to have such communities and alder forests in the mountains near national roads and railway lines.

From mid-April to early May, the "Sashimaki Mizubasho Festival" is held, where local dishes, special products are sold, and events are held.
