Are you the proud owner of an original Shirakami Nalgene bottle?
This 500ml travel essential was newly released by the Akita Shirakami Guide Association this February. What makes it special is that it not only serves as an eco-friendly water container for outdoor lovers—it is also a special souvenir from Fujisato town, a gateway that leads to the great Shirakami Mountains in Northern Akita.
It is available for purchase at Fujisato town’s roadside station, Mori no Eki, and a 10% discount is applicable to those who have booked eco tours and tours offered by the Shirakami Guide Association. The Association has also stated that a portion of the proceeds from sales will be used for conservation activities in the Shirakami Mountains.
In addition to the above reasons, here is why you should definitely get your hands on one during your visit to the Akita Shirakami area.
- Highly durable and lightweight
- Made to last for many years
- Withstands temperatures from -20°C up to 100°C
- Original product from Fujisato, Akita
- Made from recycled materials
The release of this product also potentially contributes to eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles, thereby reducing waste while encouraging the important practice of reusing.
We look forward to sharing more information on such commendable initiatives taken by local organizations towards promoting responsible, green tourism and a sustainable future for everyone.
Have fun exploring the hidden charms of the Shirakami area with this memorable souvenir in hand!
