Hakuchonosato is one of the Kanto area's most popular stopovers for swan from Siberia. It started almost 20 years ago with only six swan. Mr. Deyama, wildlife management officer tried to feed them with patience, then local support group was established and contributed to pour water into the one of the rice field during winter time for migratory birds. Thanks to their effort, the number of swan has increased year by year and now more than 1000? come and stay from October till March. Around 3 o'clock they begin to come back to the rice field. Their beautiful water-landing at dusk is stunning.
