The Forest of Sumitomo (Forester House)

For the 100th anniversary of the forestation plants of Mr. Iba Teigo, then manager of Sumitomo, the forest ecosystem of Sumitomo was established as a model of forestry management in 1993. The Forester House was named after “the person who planted the tree”, or a silviculture technician. In the hall, the history of planting and documents about the forest and the forestry are displayed. There is a memorial square and promenade around the hall, where white birch, cedar and cypress trees have been planted. You can enjoy viewing irises and mountain peonies in season.
