Ogura kohone is a perennial from the water lily family which can be seen at ”Asoike Pond” in Ikenoyama Camp Ground of “Hoshino Furusato Park.” Ogura kohone is designated as a prefectural natural treasure, and also published in the Red Data Book of the Ministry of the Environment. The stem comes out from the surface of the water and from that, pretty yellow flowers bloom. Since long ago, ”Asoike Pond” has been the object of belief for prayers for rain. There is also a legend saying that an evil dragon was turned into kohone.
