Nikko Pond
This is a lagoon formed by the blocking of an inland bay by sand dunes. This area was reclaimed and developed into rice paddies by the feudal lord Kamei Korenori in the Sengoku Period. However, the lagoon appeared during winter. Even today, a lagoon appears in winter when the water is effluent, and many water birds gather at the lagoon.

ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

Hamamura Beach is beautiful with white sand and green pine trees. Our ancestors battled with the sand brought by the northwest winds. They won the battle, and the city spread to the coastline. The area along Hamamura Beach has prospered together with Katsumi Hot Springs, discovered about 500 years ago, and Hamamura Hot Springs, discovered in the Meiji Era. The beach has been well known for “Kaigarabushi,” a work song of fishermen who catch scallops in the Sea of Japan. A river running through each valley has formed a lagoon area at the mouth of the river. Each of these areas (Mizushiri Pondo, Nikko Pond, Hogi, Hamamura) has uniquely different geological features that are good samples for learning about how the back marshes of the lagoon areas were formed.
