From 4 - 8 June, 2008, 41 members of delegation from the Korea River Association visited Japan to see rivers and watersheds in Ishikawa Prefecture and surrounding Hokuriku region. ARRN Secretariat coordinated with concerned organizations on the Japanese side (such as Kaga City Government, Civil Engineering Division of Ishikawa Prefecture Government, Komatsu/Kaga Water Village Restoration Committee, Hokuriku Ecology and Civil Engineering Society, etc.), and Prof. Tamai, the chairperson of ARRN, joined the tour to the Sai River that flows through Kanazawa City. The tour to restoration sites on rivers and water villages in Hokuriku region was a success in consolidating Korea-Japan relations in the field of river environment restoration.
