I visited Hongan Shozu.
It’s an Itoyo habitat. Itoyo are a type of fish : The threes pine stickleback.
Hongan Shozu is national designated as a natural treasure.
Itoyo only live in clean water with a stable water temperature
of under 20 degrees celsius. (68 ℉）
Here comes Children!!
I was wandering what they are doing and tying to approach them.
They started letting out the lines of their handmade fishing rods in the pond.
I tried to tell them to stop because I thought they were trying to catch Itoyo.
But I misunderstood what they were doing.
They were catching crayfish.
Crayfish are natural predator of Itoyo.
Children also assist with conserving Itoyo.
“I found it!! ”
I tried to catch crayfish, too!!
