In this episode, we will introduce you to the “Townscape of the Chikugo Region and Its Development,” the winner of 2015 Asian Townscape Awards.
Fukuoka Prefectural Government and 12 cities and towns of the Chikugo region prepared the Chikugo Landscape Charter in 2006. This was drafted to set regulatory guidelines for the area’s landscape development activities.
As the local governing bodies, NPO’s, and the citizens came together to actively promote preserving their beautiful scenic townscape, their effort was recognized and honored through said Awards this past year.
Please come see the “Townscape of Chikugo” along with the nature, culture, history, and industry created by the Yabe River and the Chikugo River.
