Restoration of Nogawa River ( Kokubunji, Koganei, Chofu and Mitaka Cities, Tokyo)

In the peripheral area of No River flowing through Tokyo, a diversified environment consisting of springs, forests, wetlands and vegetation zones spread in the past. Today, however, the diversified natural environment has been damaged by the urbanization along the river and change of land use.
Nevertheless, a project is being conducted to regenerate the wetlands by using springs, create habitats or growing spaces for various organisms and provide a place for environmental education where people can commune with nature around No River Balancing Reservoir, which was constructed to prevent flooding.
