御林(魚つき保安林)

Protected Forests

During the Tokugawa Shogunate (1603-1867) under orders from the Odawara Chief, over 150 thousand pine trees were planted for timber on the Manazuru Peninsula. However with the change of government this area became an imperially protected area. The citizens have been proactive and supportive of the protection of this forest for the wildlife and future generations.
