Protector of the Forest Morino Bannin Tomakomai Japan

森の番人

Morino Bannin: literally,protecor of the woods.The Morino Bannin Project,in Tomakomai,Japan inspiring the protector of the woods spirit in us all.

Hokkaido is Japan’s largely-untamed northern island. Sapporo is it’s capital
city. The Morino Bannin site is located a mere 15 minutes’ drive from Sapporo’s
New Chitose Airport, in Tomakomai. Near a world of modern conveniences,
and yet worlds apart, the site is a grand and natural forest, spanning 1,057
hectares (3.2 million tsubo) and stretching out as far as the eye can see.

Humanity has proven itself capable of great good, but also of great harm.
The future of Nature’s forests is clearly up to us. To enjoy the nature that
we are part of and ensure a healthy planet for future generations, it is essential
that we inspire more and more protectors of the woods people with the spirit
to live in communion with nature and a value system that can make it a reality.

Starting with this forest, we hope that the protectors of the woods spirit
will flourish and form an integral aspect of the preservation and maintenance
of forests and other natural environments throughout Japan and the world.
This vision is the origin of the Morino Bannin Project, in Tomakomai, Hokkaido.

Untouched 96% developed 4%

Almost none of the forest will be touched.
It will, instead, be maintained.

We will build a base camp,
utlizing four percent of the area.
