Sunken Forest
–„–v—Ρ
Picture of Cliffs Containing Sunken Forest
     Seeming to stretch into eternity, the Shichirinagahama is a gorgeous sandy beach that spans from Ajigasawa Town to Jūsan Lake. From the banks of the beach, one can view the expansive Sea of Japan. Fishing is also a popular activity in the area.
     The Shichirinagahama is also home to an ancient sunken forest, containing thousands of Japanese spruces and Japanese red pines, remnants from the last glacial period over 28,000 years ago. The sunken forest covers one kilometer and is said to be the largest in the world. The roots of the ancient trees, preserved in a vacuum-pack-like state by the moisture in the area, stick out from the cliffs along the beach and are noteworthy as fossils.
