Around the Hakusan-Tedorigawa Geopark

The landforms and landscapes flowing from Mt. Hakusan to the Tedori River and down to the Sea of Japan, and the traditional foods and lifestyles this bounty of water sustains, were recognized in 2011 as a Japan Geopark. A Geopark is a special natural park that provides a place to see the legacy of geography, and the work of the animals and people that live on it.

This course will take you by car around the Tedori River Gorge, the Kuwajima Fossil Wall, and the Million-Kan Rock (kan=3.75 kg traditional unit of weight; 16 m high, 52 m around), which are some of the attractions of the Hakusan-Tedorigawa Geopark.
