Rules & Etiquette in Nature Parks
Please follow these rules to conserve Aomori’s nature parks for the future.
Please do not pick or take home any plants or animals
Do not take home any pebbles or stones
Do not pick or take home any flowers or trees that you see. Enjoy them in their original setting. It takes years for them to grow back.
Camping and bonfires are prohibited
Enjoy camping and bonfires only in the specified locations. Doing so elsewhere may cause fires or damage the plants.
No graffiti or vandalism
To conserve nature, do not draw any graffiti or vandalize the park facilities or plants. These parks are for everyone. Graffiti is a criminal offense (property damage).
Remember to keep the park clean for everyone to enjoy.
Do not set a tight itinerary
Be sure to check the climate, transportation access, road conditions, and volcano information in advance. Be sure that your itinerary is not tight. Avoid accidents.
Running into or over wild animals will cause injury to people and wildlife. Do not drive into restricted areas.
Please use the toilet facilities prior to entry
In some areas, there are no restrooms. Use the restroom in advance, or bring a portable toilet.
Please do not leave the walking paths
Do not trespass into roped-off areas or go off the wooden paths. Doing so damages plants and their habitats.
Take all garbage home
Take home all garbage (including leftovers, packaging, and cans) to conserve the natural landscape. It is wrong to assume that leaving behind food and drinks is fine because they will decompose.
Be careful of rising and receding tides
Obtain sufficient information in advance, check warnings, and avoid accidents on the coastline.
Do not feed wild animals
Feeding wild animals may lead to accidents and injury, and it also damages the ecosystem. Do not feed wild animals.
Smoke only in designated areas
Take all cigarette stubs and ashes home because they may cause a fire. Smoke only in designated areas, and always carry a portable ashtray with you.
No loud talking. Be considerate of others
Do not cause trouble, such as making loud noises, having loud conversations, blocking pathways or pedestrian walks, or trespassing onto private property.
