Kamakura Moss City Project

Kamakura as  a city of moss

Environmentally sensitive mosses cannot grow in every place.

In Kamakura, there is an abundance of small valleys where moss likes to grow, and a history of shrines and temples where moss has been cultivated for many years.

It is a precious city where you can enjoy the rich mosses while being close to the city centre.

We are working to make Kamakura a 'city of moss'!
