Kuwadori Shimin no mori (Kuwadori Citizens' Forest)

'Kuwadori shimin no mori' was developed as a place for learning about the environment and experiencing forest activities with the idea of 'protecting and growing forests in Joetsu'. It is located in the Western mid mountain area, which has rich green forests abundant with water. Take a walk in these magnificent forests, and enjoy a forestry experience or various forest activities and programs. People of all ages can have an excellent experience here.
There are four zones - a forest zone where you can experience forestry techniques, Siebolds' beech forest where you can take a walk and enjoy seasonal scenery, a charcoal lodge where you can experience charcoal making, and a natural woodland that co-exists with the nearby populated area where you can experience woodland maintenance.
