Yonago Waterbirds Sanctuary米子水鳥公園

Park / Green Space

Yonago Waterbirds Sanctuary is located around 15 minutes' drive from JR Yonago Station; the sanctuary itself is around two minutes' walk from the parking area. The sanctuary, which is an important habitat for wild birds, occupies a part of Nakaumi Lagoon where the Ramsar Convention is registered. Every year, Yonago Waterbirds Sanctuary is visited by around 1,000 Tundra Swans (Bewick's Swans), more than anywhere else in Western Japan, as well as by an average of more than 75,000 geese and ducks. The sanctuary is also a vital habitat for many endangered plant and animal species, including Potamogeton pectinatus, a submerged aquatic plant, and the Appasus, an aquatic insect. At the Sanctuary's Nature Center, visitors can listen to explanatory talks by park rangers and volunteers, and can use the telescopes and binoculars installed in the Nature Center to view the birds. Various special events are held at the Sanctuary, including Nature Watching Fairs, etc.

          Tottori prefecture is Japanese seasonal diversity at its best: Huge sand dunes cover the north coast, making for the perfect summer beach trip complete with the unexpected addition of camels; November brings the delectable snow crab, while winter around Mount Daisen, the Chugoku region's highest mountain, promises snow sports and magical views.
