Natural Habitat of Setsubunso at DojoEcology Site
This is one of the largest natural habitats of setsubunso (Eranthis pinnatifida) in Japan. Setsubunso blossoms around late February to mid-March, and the delicate white flowers that are about 2cm in diameter look like a blanket of snow. They are jun-zetsumetsu kigu shu (near endangered), but preservation activities are being carried out locally.
