Kashibaru Wetland

Kashibaru Wetland Kashibaru Marsh is known as the "Oze of Kyushu", and is designated as a natural environment conservation area. This beautiful marshland, covering an area of around 120,000 m2 at an altitude of 600 meters, is a paradise with around 60 species of untouched rare marsh plants growing naturally as well as insects, wild birds and so on. Kashibaru Marsh is also known as a picturesque place which reveals various expressions throughout the four seasons. Buckbean, said to be a surviving plant of the Ice Age, with its bell-shaped flowers, Pogonia japonica, Nymphaea tetragona and watershield, and white egret flower with its egret-shaped flowers, bloom beautifully in spring, June, July and August, respectively. In autumn, the flowers of insectivorous plants such as bladderworts and Utricularia bifida catch the eye, while clusters of Angiospermae burst into bloom in unison, and the cry of reed warblers fill one with a sense of deep autumn. Then there is the beautiful, white world of winter. Visitors can enjoy the turning of the glorious seasons. Removing flora from the Kashibaru Marsh is strictly forbidden. Please treat this precious natural preserve with respect.
