◆Comment from the Guide

The large community (10 m× 300 m) of baikamo (Ranunculus nipponicus) spreads in the lowland (approx. 10 meters in altitude) 4 km from the mouth of the River Takimi. Such a large baikamo community is rare and scientifically valuable. In the blooming season, it looks like as if white carpets have been spread on the river surface.
