■ UNESCO Biosphere Reserve      

                                         

 

                         "UNESCO Biosphere Reserve" has UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and   

                              Cultural Organazaition) and "Man and the Biosphere (MAB) it was in 1976 in the

                             "Man and the Biosphere Plan" planning project.

                              It aims to reconcile the conservation of ecosystems with their sustainable use

                             (human society co-existing with nature) Shiga Highland UNESCO,

                             Biosphere Reserve, registered in 1980, in 2014 The area of municipalities has been

                             expanded to all towns.

                             Yamanouchi Town is a sightseeing spot eminent Japan which about 4.3 milion people

                             a year visit, and the rapid development around the skiing area was pushed forward

                             in Shiga Kogen in after 1955, but in "core area" there is not hardly artficial influence,

                             and profound in buffer zone is dotted with beautiful wetlands and high-rise moors.

                             Because a profit utilizes these rich nature, based on the idea of the UNESCO Bioshere

                             Reserve, I plan the promotion of an ecotourism and the enviromental education while

                             keeping naturel enviroments in good condition.
