Fukushimagata Wetlands

Fukushimagata

A picturesque nature reserve where birds, flowers and surrounding mountains are reflected on the waters of beautiful marshlands

Fukushimagata Wetlands is a vast nature reserve stretching over 193 hectares. It is home to a number of endangered species of animals and plants and is listed on Japan’s 100 greatest natural environments. The park is a paradise for bird and plant lovers.

In spring, the carpet of rapeseed flowers is impressive. Indulge yourself in the vivid yellow colour and scent of the flowers while listening to birds singing. In summer, giant pink lotus flowers are in bloom. The rarely seen Euryale ferox, a massive lotus with two-metre leaves and thorns, can be found here. In winter, the snowy scene of the wetlands with migratory swans is a favourite.

Along with flocks of swans, the greatest concentration of Eastern Taiga Bean geese, a recognised national natural treasure, resides here. Fukushimagata Wetlands is also designated as a wildlife sanctuary for the Japanese white crucian carp.

After a walk around the wetlands learn about these rarely seen animals and plants at the View Fukushikagata museum. The museum offers a café, gift shop and a glass-walled observatory. Enjoy a 360° panoramic view of the Fukushimagata Wetlands and the neighbouring Echigo Plains.
