The Mo Marimo

At The Marimo Observation Center:
Sneak a Peek at the Marimo in
Churui Bay!

Marimo at Churui Bay.

An underwater television camera at the bottom of Churui Bay allows constant monitoring of the marimo and their environment.

Marimo lay in tiers at the lake's bottom. The underwater camera allows visitors to see marimo trade positions, through the help of underwater currents, with marimo in other tiers. Trading positions allows all marimo access to the sun's rays. What a courteous group!
