We are restoring the coastal disaster prevention forests and improving the seaside parks to restore the natural environment and the landscape around the seaside, in addition to revitalizing the coastal areas to make them new spots for people to interact.

The project to improve seaside parks will include the construction of a “sports zone” in the Gamo area, a “recreation zone” in the Arahama area, a “play zone” in the Ido area, and a “nature zone” in the Fujitsuka area. A hill 10-15 m in height designed for short-time evacuation will be built in each of these zones, allowing for the evacuation of nearby residents and visitors up to the hills when a tsunami strikes. Completion is scheduled for FY 2017.
