Other Natural Terrain Spots in Saitama Area

  • Hanno Riverside
    Travel / Tourism
    Saitama Pref. Hannoushi Kuge
    Located along the Iruma River, this spot is about a 15-minute walk west of Hanno Station along Prefectural Route 70. The riverside has lots of green space where children can run free in the midst of nature. The river is shallow enough for even preschoolers to play in, and a wooden deck and a boardwalk along it makes it great for a stroll. Lots of visitors come to view the blossoms when the riverbed's cherry trees flower in spring. There's also a shopping area nearby where you can rent equipment to have a barbecue.

    Saitama Hiki-gun Ogawamachi Ogawa 1405-2
    This colony of dogtooth violets is located in Ogawa Town, Hiki County. The single large cluster is the result of a regional conservation effort started to reclaim the natural scenery of the satoyama (a border area between mountain foothills and flat land). In early July, there is also a festival to release giant purple butterflies, the national butterfly of Japan. There is also a small museum that serves as a rest area.

    道の駅おがわまちから仙元山見晴らしの丘に行く山道の途中にあります。休憩所を兼ねたテラスと展示室を有す四阿的な小屋で営業時間外は展示室は施錠され入れません。カタクリの時期、オオムラサキが宿るエノキのシーズンに訪れたら如何でしょうか。

Saitama Areas

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.
