Restoration of Matsuura River (Saga Prefecture)

In the "Azami-no-se" area of Matsuura River running through Matsuura County of Saga Prefecture, people have long suffered from flood damage. Therefore the retarding method has been adopted as the flood countermeasure instead of building embankments in this region and resident-participation projects to recover organisms in the valuable river environment and regenerate the contact between people and organisms are being promoted. As a result, a traditional fishing method has been revived and children have begun to play by the riverside again. In this way, the connection between people and nature has been regenerated.
