There were many fishers along the valley. Local fishery unions manage the area and they should buy fishing license, I heard.

Notes:(by tatsuca)
   I visited this short course the previous week after a park walk of Saitama Kenmin-no-mori, to find Akebonoso, which is listed in an endangered plants list of Tokyo. But I couldn't find it at the time so I checked other hikers reports again to narrow down the points they found them and revisited again.

This time, I found nearly twenty of them successfully.


As this is less than a short hike I just attach youtube of Akebonosos I found today:
