"Masters of Forest" --- Their Wisdom and Arts ---

Summary of Business

Our ancestors have learnt through their experiences the importance of forests and have endeavored to conserve forests.
Many of these ancestors were unknown people in mountain villages. “Masters of Forest” are people living today who devote themselves to forestry or forest-related activities. Their occupations vary widely (e.g. tree planting, charcoal making, herb collecting), but they all have precise insight on nature, excellent skill and profound spirituality. Their wisdom and arts are about to be lost in many local villages suffering from aging.

As an effort to discover such wisdom and to hand on their knowledge to young generations, we started to find those Masters, and to implement the programme called “Kikigaki Koshien” in 2002. In this programme, each high school student conducts an interview with a Master and records his/her story.
