● Hokkaido inheritance wakka abiogenesis flower garden ●


... that everlasting flower garden, time are over wakka ... it slowly 


 We come from that marsh springing out of fresh water matched "wakka" in meaning called "wakka o i" (= water a certain place) by Ainu in the middle of the sandbar.


 If there is the forest in wakka, and there is grassy place, and there is place where fresh water begins to spring out, and there is in sandy area, ecosystem is various.


 Road which passed to 24 kilometers to run through this sandbar performed traffic regulation to protect vegetation and ecosystem of wakka in 1991 and prohibited entry of public vehicles. As a result of regulation, there became little possibility such as dumping, effluent gas and oil leak of garbage from vehicle, seminal carry-on of weeds from other areas, the dilapidation by illegal dig.


 In addition, we adopt "wakka natural environments maintenance declaration" in former Tokorocho assembly in June, 1998. We expressed determination of town aiming at symbiosis with nature inside and outside the town.


 We inherited mind of "wakka natural environments maintenance declaration" accomplished in former Tokorocho in Kitami-shi and merger, June, 2009 in March, 2006 and declared as new Kitami-shi and decided that we conveyed beautiful nature of wakka abiogenesis flower garden in history for a long time.

                ◎Slight story ...

Origin of the name                         of "Palace of the Dragon King way"

 We praise nature of wakka saying, "it is not the Amanohashidate (Amano has dandy) ratio", and writer "Keigetsu Omachi" (Kochi native place) of Meiji comes from that we named "Palace of the Dragon King way".

 That means that nature of wakka was splendid from old days.

 You protect in history and must convey this splendid inheritance.

 Regardless of tangible formlessness including nature and the history in Hokkaido, we choose thing which wants to tell from various value in the next generation as "Hokkaido inheritance" and are people of Hokkaido exercise that it is said to push forward the making of Hokkaido with new charm through maintenance, utilization.

 Other than "wakka abiogenesis flower garden," "remains of Tokoro group is authorized to Hokkaido inheritance as "Okhotsk coast antiquity group", too".
