At Tochiwara Children's Nature Experience Camp on Aug 1st and 2nd, 2009


We did activities whenever rain is over as it rained many time this year. Because of rain, it was relatively cool and confortable.


As water level is relatively higher than usual, we just used the are of stream at the camping site. Some staffs stood at down stream area just in case.


Though water was cloudy, we could find aquatic insect larvae.


We finished all day activities on time so it was the first time we had a dinner before dusk!


We did the micro-expedition in the next morning. Found tiny insects in soil of mountain.


Though being dead, we found a snake (Japanese odd-tooth snake). We went out for catching insects in neighbors.


Our friend, Yamamoto-san joined us to help. Immediately, he invited kids to have fun with insects.

Group photo at the end of camp. Had a lot of fun!
