When one thinks of “original Japanese landscape,” mountain villages, forests, rice paddies, and crop fields come to mind. Makino Forest is a 50-hectare undeveloped woodland with a thicket of assorted trees, paddy fields converted from a marshland, and a reservoir. Of the 50 hectares, 10 hectares undergo periodic undergrowth clearing, forest thinning, and restoration, allowing you to see many plants and insects. Moreover, there is a 4-kilometer pathway made from wood chips from the forest thinning. Take a peaceful, therapeutic walk through the forest and enjoy the wild birds and plants.
In addition, you can interact with the bountiful nature at the neighboring Tachibana Fureai Park and Tachibana Weir.
