In the 60-hectare forest adjacent to Momoyama Reservoir, 8km of observation trails allow you to observe familiar wild birds, plants and insects. As soon as you enter the Nature Center, check out the information board that gives today’s highlights in the forest! Direct any questions to the ranger at reception. The animals and wild birds that live in the forest are presented monthly on the “Forest Animals on Candid Camera” panel exhibition, and in the joint exhibit with Himeji Science Museum, “This Month’s Wild Birds”. Aquariums hold fish that live in the nearby Otsumo River, breeding cases nurture the Himeji City butterfly, the Chinese windmill, and other exhibits show feathers, nests and other items gathered in the forest. The picture book corner laying tatami mats is usually crowded with small children, and there’s a tadpole-breeding exhibition on the veranda during the spring. The exhibition room houses stuffed birds, as well as feathers, nests and eggs. There’s also a study corner where you can learn about how the animals live in the forest. For those who wish to study nature in more depth, the book corner holds more than 800 volumes containing more specialized material on wild birds and nature conservation. The museum also provides information on events and workshops in the region. Be sure to take the illustrated map (free) when you go for a walk in the forest. Binoculars (free to borrow) might also be a good idea. Along the observation trails you’ll find observation huts, gazebos and benches, where you can sit and eat your lunch. On most holidays, the rangers organize “Forest Exploration for Families” guided walks (reservation required). Lecturers also offer “Forest Seminars” (reservation required) for those who wish to deepen their knowledge of nature. In addition, once or twice a month the forest volunteers, “Kikimimizukin”, offer weekday guided walks and picture book reading hours to help familiarize visitors with the forest.
