About Aichi Kaisho Forest Center

Objectives of establishment

Kaisho Forest is the continuous forest located near City of Nagoya. It includes agricultural fields, wetlands, etc. Northern goshawk and Star magnolia are the unique species that represent the abundance of the nature.

The Aichi International Exposition 2005 Japan was originally planned to take place in Kaisho Forest. Instead, small area was exploit to make “Seto-Aichi pavilion” of the Expo and rest of the forest was conserved for the future as a memorial forest. Seto-Aichi pavilion was renovated and opened as “Aichi Kaisho Forest Center” in fall 2006.

This Center was established for the purpose of succeeding the accomplishment and concept, i.e., “Nature’s Wisdom”, of the Expo. It is a place to explore the relationship between nature and human beings. Aichi Kaisho Forest Center provides educational activities related to forest and environment.
