Operation of Akagi Nature Park


At the foot of Mt. Akagi in Gunma Prefecture lies the Akagi Nature Park, a place thriving with plants, insects and small animals, which Credit Saison has been managing since 2010 with the support of individuals, businesses, and groups who agree with the sentiment of wanting to contribute to a richer society by allowing as many children as possible to experience nature to develop their sensitivities.
While working on creating an environment with the goal of making coexistence between humanity and nature a reality, Credit Saison is deepening ties with the region and local communities, as well as with Shibukawa City, to which it has concluded a cooperative agreement, in a wide range of fields such as health, welfare, education, and tourism, strengthening ties with environmental study groups and health promotion programs which use the nature park's fields, and as a tourist spot for Gunma Prefecture’s Destination Campaign.
