Kunigami sets special therapy road course

Date Posted: 2007-03-29

A new walking course dubbed ‘Therapy Road’ has been approved for Kunigami, along with 11 forest therapy spots.

The National Land Forest Promotion Organization says the new course will accommodate Kunigami residents and visitors. It’s the first recognition for Kunigami Son. Village headman Mr. Uehara says “I’m glad we’re officially approved. I want to make a proper program for therapy base using our forest.”
The program will be coordinated between the Kunigami administration and civil organizations.

“Kunigami Son forest therapy promotion will be the subject of a conference soon, where we’ll make a program relating to health, environment and sightseeing,” said Uehara. Kunigami hopes to begin promoting the new course beginning April 2008.

Officials will study Yonabaru Dake, an experiment that began in February, Higi Oh Taki and Kunigami Son Forest Park, as well as the stroll road in Yanbaru Forest, to learn how to maintain a therapy road. The recognition is part of the Forestry Agency’s ‘Forest Therapy Integrated Project’, which began nearly two years ago. There are 24 locations that have been identified by the agency.
