This lagoon formed when sand dunes formed a dam on the bay. The reclaimed land was turned into rice paddies by the feudal lord of Shikano Castle Kamei Korenori during the Warring-States period in the 16th century, however during the winter season it turns back into a lagoon. Today, the lagoon appears when the water level is high and is home to many water fowl.
