We are rebuilding coastal disaster prevention forests and improving Kaigan Park to restore the natural environment and landscape around the coastal areas, in addition to revitalizing the coastal areas to make them new and attractive spots for social interactions.

The development of Kaigan Park includes construction of various sections, with the Gamo development area as a “sports zone", the Arahama area as a “recreation zone”, the Ido area as a “play zone”, and the Fujitsuka area as a “nature zone”. A hill 10-15 m in height designed for temporary evacuation has been built in each of these zones, allowing for the evacuation of nearby residents and visitors up to the hills when a tsunami strikes.
