We call the japanese giant salamander "Hanzake". In this reference room you can see the Hanzake's ecology, skeletal specimens, and a record of its activities in Nichinan-twon to protect it. Hanzake is designated as a special natural monument of Japan.Therefore, ordinary people should not touch it. But, we believe in protecting the Hanzake's habitat. For that purpose, it is necessary to balance protection and tourism of Hanzake. We'll teach on this page when we're ready for the Hanzake tourism plan. Thank you.
