Takigashira Marsh


Nature trails in Kamikawa, Aga-machi

Takigashira Marsh is one of Japan's rare manmade wetlands.
Here in the wilderness, you can observe up close a profusion of wetland flowers in every season and species of wild birds and dozens of dragonfly species. The stunning backdrop also makes this a photographer's paradise.
Early summer heralds the dance of the fireflies, while autumn is the time to appreciate the foliage as you strike out on the Kamoshika Trail, surrounded by broadleaf forest.
