A Volunteer group “Re: Living with Yoshino” initiated a project on student desks in Yoshino Junior High School in Nara. The aim is to encourage students to use locally-sourced desks so that they feel connected to their local communities. This project introduces a sustainable system: the top is made of Yoshino hinoki (Japanese cypress) and personally owned by a student, and students assemble desks with the top upon their enrollment, and disassemble and bring it home with them after graduation. This will offer a new local economic cycle that connects communities to local enterprises.
