Kaze no Matsubara Forest

Categories:   Nature/Lifestyle

The black pine trees of Kaze no Matsubara were originally planted during the Edo period for the purpose of erosion control. Sprawling 14 km north-to-south, it is considered to be one of Japan’s largest black pine groves.

With walking paths, resting spaces, and an athletic field, this forest is a popular relaxation place among locals. Visitors can also rent a bicycle at the Sun Wood Noshiro Information Center, and enjoy cycling through the seven million pine trees.
