|I returned to Kyoto after I lived in Tokyo for 3 years,
and I went to Hirase of the Shokawa River after a long time.
I found out Shokawa River accumulated much gravel then,
but I could meet to beautiful Yamame.
By using Route 158-156 from Shokawa interchange of Tokai Hokuriku express- way,
we can arrive at Hirase within 30 minute nowadays.
Now, a new road that not go through Hirase village was constructed from the edge of village.
I think, it became convenient but we are losing the precious something.
When I went to Hirase before bypass is made,
the whole area of mountaineering path of Mt.Sanpokuzureyama was a habitat of Gifucho (Luehdorfia) and we could catch it at will.
When I visited next, capture of the butterfly in the area was prohibited.
I can understand the posture that protect the nature environment,
but the nature environment was changed by construction of bypass.
A slope of dogtooth violet that is a habitat of Gifucho was vanished.
I thought I have been shown off foolishness and selfishness of human.
What meaning did the capture prohibition of the butterfly have?
