Animal-pathway in “Nasu Heisei no Mori”

The northern half of the Nasu Imperial Villa in Nasu was opened to the public and placed under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of the Environment, and “Nasu Heisei no Mori” opened in 2011.

“Nasu Heisei no Mori” is an untouched forest with abundant biodiversity, and in 2010, our chairman Minato and others conducted a survey confirming the presence of Japanese dormouse and other animals.

As the forest is separated by a prefectural road, an Animal-pathway was installed as a passage between the two areas. The design was done by the Animal-pathway Research Society, and construction was delayed due to the earthquake, but it was carried out in October. On the day it was installed, Japanese dormouse were confirmed to be using it in the middle of the night.
