      Hyogo Park of the Oriental White Stork is a special nature reserve. At this reserve the endangered storks, known as kounotori designated as a Special Natural Monument of Japan, are taken care of, helped to multiply, and returned to the wild.
      The kounotori are also considered an endangered species by the IUCN. Toyooka City in Tajima cultivates rice with low usage of pesticides and chemical fertilizers to create a safe environment for the kounotori. This eco-friendly rice is called “kounotori-mai”.
