In Hiroshima Prefecture, every year the first Sunday of June is declared Hiroshima "Mountain Day" as a day to recognize the importance of the local mountains. This year the 16th "Hiroshima Mountain Day Citizen's Gathering" was held on June 4 at 14 locations in 13 municipalities in the prefecture, and various events such as forestry work, nature observation sessions, woodworking classes, and forest concerts were held.
In addition to logging using saws, the volunteers also took charge of tasks such as making wood chips on the spot from the wood that had been cut down. Thanks to the work of the participants, sunshine started to shine through between the trees on the mountain which had previously been densely overgrown, greatly improving its appearance.
The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group will continue to deepen communication with local communities and strive to protect local environments.
