Enjoy nature watching at this precious habitat of numerous species of birds and insects
This circular pond is home to a variety of birds and insects, including butterflies and dragonflies. This wet grassland area, about 250 meters in diameter, is home to many precious plants and animals. Multicolored dragonflies fly around here from early summer through autumn. It is also one of the recommended areas to visit for those interested in birdwatching. There is a short walking trail along the edge of the pond, and two lookout decks. Within a 5 minute walking distance there is another lookout point, where you can see Yui Pond from above, with the sea and the Dōzen Islands in the background.
