“Forest School” with the warmth of wood.
This school is built next to the lush “Fukko-no-Mori”, where children’s activities are scattered. Each classroom is open to the forest, and the school building surrounds a courtyard with konara oak trees and grass. Children enjoy the change of seasons in the beauty of wood and woodwork.
