Roughly 4,500 square meters of land has been used to create a botanical garden reflecting the natural environment and culture of Inujima, with a long-abandoned glass greenhouse as a centerpiece. It is not a conventional botanical garden, professionally landscaped so that people can visit and observe plant life, but rather a place where island residents and visitors can join in the process of reviving the land, and enjoy self-reliance in areas from food to energy while experiencing the joy of living within the cycles of nature.
While learning from island residents about how to harness the power of nature and vegetation in daily life, the garden aims through workshops and various activities to create environments and spaces for experiencing all that plants can offer, from food to fragrance, education, and recreation. At Inujima Life Garden, island residents and visitors can relax and learn from one another, thinking together about future lifestyles.
