Did You Know?
One Tree One Rock  The movement to protect the summit of Mt. Daisen started about 30 years ago. Hikers voluntarily bring a tree or a rock to the summit to fill the erosion grooves and revive the greenery.
Mountain Cleaning Over 700 volunteers clean up Mt. Daisen by picking up garbage in spring and fall. Also, there is an activity to plant beech trees alongside the Yokotemichi trekking path.
Carry Down Volunteers carry down the human waste from the summit shelter to conserve the natural environment.
