Japanese Cedars in Sugisawa 杉沢の沢スギ

Fresh air filled with negative ions abounds in this forest of Japanese cedar

Japanese cedars grow in a dense grove in these marshes fed by the one of Japan's 100 best spring waters. In the alluvial fan of the Kurobe River, many natural springs bubble up through the shallow top layer of soil, creating a fertile zone with plentiful groundwater. The dense forest of trees, called "sawasugi" (literally "marsh Japanese cedar") once stretched for over 45 ha in the area of Sugisawa. Now, Sugisawa's forest has shrunk to just 2.7 ha due to logging, and has been designated a natural reserve by the prefecture. A well-maintained nature path allows visitors to enjoy the mystical atmosphere of the forest, with its brooks, ponds and moss-covered trees. The area is renowned among nature lovers, and is gaining recognition as a wonderful area for sightseeing.
