    Travel / Tourism
    Saitama Pref. Hikigunranzanmachi Sugaya 829-1
    This nature park is located on a river terrace pn the left bank of Toki River. Designed on the idea of a biotope, it makes use of the original landscape with varied terrain including mixed forest and open meadows for the benefit of the creatures living there. The park is home to about 60 species of butterflies, including the omurasaki, the national butterfly of Japan. To help make it easier to spot them, greenery favored by their larvae as feed has been preserved in some places, as well as the flowers preferred by adults.

Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you’ll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
