Outline

Kumamoto City is known as ‘Forest capital’ and citizens have a special attachment to the trees. Shirakawa River running through central city is called as ‘Greenery Area’ which is a symbol of ‘Forest capital’. Meanwhile, here was very weak for flooding. That is why the reconciliation between flood prevention and green conservation was a big issue for a long time. With long citizen participations and attentive design studies, strengthening flood prevention and conserving trees, symbols and identity of the city, the river is transforming Kumamoto’s riverside landscape for the future.
