Akame 3 (Mie)
Description: Organized with "Akame no Mori wo Sodateru kai", a local environmental NPO for conservation of forest since 1999. Being located near from 2 big cities Osaka and Nagoya, there were some plans to build a golf field and waste disposal site, but local people have stopped them by "Woods Trust" movement. They founded this group in 1996 to collect donations to buy and protect lands, to own a eco-resort hotel to enjoy nature, to maintain forests, to create a pond for dragonflies, to host national copse meeting, etc.
Type of Work: We will cut down trees in the forest and carry them out. We sometimes need to use blades and machineries with lecture how to use. Work is quite hard from morning to evening even in rain if it’s not so heavy. Sometimes, we may have exchange with mentally challenged children who are working here.
Study Theme: Volunteers will get knowledge of conservation work in a forest.
Accommodation: Volunteer will stay at a log house or Japanese style tatami house. Meals will be cooked by volunteers by turns.
Language: English (Japanese is also welcomed!)
Requirements: Strong motivation and Physical strength are highly needed.
Approximate Location: About 60 km east of Osaka. There are famous falls nearby many hikers visit.
