Welcome to the Village in the Sky!
On this episode, we head to the forested mountains surrounding the village of Totsukawa in Nara Prefecture to meet French-born Jolan Ferreri. A lover of the woodlands, Jolan works to invigorate the region with his creation, an exciting aerial recreational park held in suspension among the trees dubbed the Village in the Sky. We also visit Yugawara where Thai-native Manutchaya Chaopreecha works at the local tourist information center to promote this famous hot-spring resort town in Kanagawa Prefecture.
Jolan's brainchild, the Village in the Sky, lets visitors walk in suspension through the forest
Forests make up 96% of Totsuka's territory, but the area's once-flourishing forestry is on the decline
Jolan's mentor in all things forestry, Higashi Nobuhiko, is pinning his hopes on the Village in the Sky
Manutchaya puts a lot of attention into the assistance she provides to tourists
