Hi everyone! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
Since last time, I'm writing about my past trip to Sado Island in Niigata.
In the end of Part 1, I posted this photo.
Have you heard about TOKI bird?
It's a Japanese crested ibis.
The?scientific name toki is "nipponia nippon" , so it's thought to be one of our symbol birds in Japan.
However, they're on the brink of extinction for decades.
There used to be so many toki birds especially in Sado Island, and they're now trying to breed again in this island.
On my trip, I visited a park called "Toki no mori koen".
In this park, there's a museum where you can learn about toki.
There's also another building called "Toki Fureai Plaza".
On the 1st floor of the building, there's a window...
Everyone was looking eagerly through the window.
