Narawara (Betsukai Town) is ruin of a forest split between Notsuke Peninsula, as well as the Todowara area. Notsuke Peninsula is actually a big sand spit, where sea water seeped into the forest when ground subsidence occurred. As a result, the trees withered, died, and became white in color. Narawara is a colony of dead Mizunara, a member of the Nara (oak), while Todowara is of dead Todomatsu, a member of the pine family. Observation of Narawara is only permitted from the road. There is a 25kilometer road on the narrow peninsula. The traditional sightseeing season is from May to October.
