Planting trees for a coastal disaster prevention forest, environmental maintenance, other maintenance (reducing undergrowth), replanting, raising seedlings, and orientation (background regarding the establishment of this group and the progress towards reconstruction), social gatherings with local residents, and other activities can be made available based on the participants' requests.
Seedlings are the original species grown in this area such as Japanese black pine, Quercus, Wild cherry blossoms, and so on.
