Close to Qiqihar are numerous wetlands and the Zhalong Nature Reserve, famous in China for being home to numerous red-crowned cranes.

Qiqihar in The War That Came EarlyEdit

Tsitsihar was a city in the Empire of Manchukuo. Although Manchukuo was officially neutral during Japan's war against the Soviet Union, it was used to funnel invading Japanese troops into Siberia. For this reason, the Soviets bombed Tsitsihar and Harbin. The civil government of Manchukuo issued a protest at this violation of their neutrality.[1]
