Thoughts on the lagoon


Kunio Yanagida

△日本海岸風景の特色は潟に集まる 日本海岸では風景の特色が潟に集まつて居ります。

△ Features of the Japanese coastal scenery gather in the lagoon. On the Japanese coast, scenery features gather in the lagoon.


Oddly enough, the Pacific lagoon and the Japanese shore lagoon are completely different.


For example, Narumi lagoon and Kiyomi lagoon are open in the remote area, but lagoons on the Japanese coast are different from Susukiyuki.


There are two types of Japanese lagoons, but many geographers use the meaning of Ifugagata on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.


At the same time, if you travel on the north coast, you will not be able to live without deeply feeling the hobbies of the lagoon.

△潟の生成する原因 學理上から此原因を説いたならば面白い談話も出來るのでありますが、兎に角北海岸の潟は、潮差の少い事と、一定の方向、殊に海岸線に沿うた風の烈しい事とが、潟を作つた主な原因であらうと思ひます。

△ Causes of lagoons If you explain this cause from a scientific point of view, you will find interesting narratives. However, the lagoons on the Kakuhoku Coast have little tide difference and a certain direction, especially on the coastline. I think that the violent wind along the river is the main cause of the lagoon.


On this Japanese coast, the lagoons are very hot, and the small lagoons that are not on the 20th-century terrain are unbeatable. It is a newly constructed lagoon with sand pits, like Kitami's Lake Saruma.


The distinctive feature of Lagoon Lake is that the sand trap that makes the piece comes out along the coastline, and it closes the entrance.

△羽前の象潟 本土に入つては、先づ青森の十三潟と秋田の八郎潟とでありますが、此二つの潟は大きな潟ですが、自分は實地を調べて居りませぬ。

△ Before entering the mainland Kisogata, the Aomori Jusogata and Akita Hachirogata, these two lagoons are large lagoons.


Then, going down south, Kishakugata is filled with the scenery that seems to be the best when it touches Matsushima. However, during the eruption of Mt. Chochokai during the Bunsei period, it was parallel to the land.


Looking at the records, there are a few tap waters that are connected to seawater, and the thriving islands of pine, fall foliage, coral, etc. are in the middle of the archipelago of Matsushima today, It seems that the snow of Mt. Chokai is reflected in the water of the sea, and the scenery is beautiful.


Today, it is a paddy field where the lagoon grows, and the Buddhist temple and Ifu temple, which were at the center of this landscape, are now buried in the dead tree agar and are extremely ruined.

△越後の干潟 それから下つて越後に來ますと、潟の數が非常に多いのです。

△ Echigo tidal flats. If you go down and go to Echigo, there are many lagoons in the lagoon.


This is an example of Niigata becoming a dry land.


You can also see it by embracing the land of the ugly Mizusawa between the dunes and the Shinano River.


In addition, Ifugata such as Tsukigata in the south is famous as a production area of Kakuhei Isogo, but now it is a tidal flat.


There is an existing lagoon here.


In other words, there are existing lagoons such as Tomarigata in Kita-Hagiwara-gun, Gaigata-gun in Nishi-Hagiwara-gun, and there are many lagoons that are gradually occupied by paddy fields. There is a kite in the fishing net sashimi.


It's always a good idea that the current plains of Kashihara Gogun are mostly between land and water.


When it's a little rainy, there is plenty of water to catch water, and if you don't have a boat, you can't walk in the field.

△潟の生成變遷する地文上の趨向 此地方を歩いて見ますると、潟が出來てはまた無くなる地文上の趨向が善くわかるのです。

△ The direction of geography where the lagoon formation changes. If you walk around this area, you can see the direction of the geography where the lagoon will disappear and disappear.


It seems that there are always a lot of winds blowing from the south to the north along the coastline, and all the river mouths are bent and water flows into the northwest in both the Shinano River and the Aga River.


Now, you can clearly see the trace of the river bank that was gradually cramped on the left bank by a flying sand trap.


In fact, as in the Shinano River, the town of Sanroku, located in the upper Jumari, is slightly more than 3 miles away from the coast, and the downstream flows almost in parallel with the coast.


On the other hand, there is no difference in the coastline downstream from this area, except for Kamiyama of Akihiko.


Even if you look at it, you can see that even the same landfill Nitta has a different taste from the Niijima of Kashiwajima and Sabae.


Nitta on the east coast encounters mud from Kawaguchi.


The north coast is made of sand and a natural tide dike is built first, and the inside gradually becomes dry.

△潟を見ざる越中の國 越中は、立山山脈の餘波を受けて、海岸までが傾斜地となつて居ります。

△ Echinaka-no-Kuni, where you can't see the lagoon, is affected by the tsunami of the Tateyama Mountains, and the coast is sloped.


As you pass the coastline by train, all the large and small rivers stand in front of you and line up in front of you, indicating that there is something different from Echigo, where the terrain grows.
