Club YAMASAN'chi is an independent research activity group that has been active since 2020 by members participating in the NagoyaResearch Institute for the Future Development. They are interested in a new way of interaction between people and nature byutilizing the mixed forest in Komaki City, Aichi Prefecture. Activities include overall maintenance and management of mixed forests,such as pruning, thinning, and undergrowth cutting, as well as maintenance of research facilities and holding exchange meetings.

In the past, the area was a satoyama(mixed forest) area, and until the 1950s, it was a place where people and nature interacted, suchas collecting firewood for fuel. However, in the last 50 years, the use of firewood as fuel has disappeared, while the development ofresidential areas has weakened the connection between mixed forests and people. "A new way of interaction between people andnature" is also a search for a method for sustainably maintaining mixed forests and passing them on to the next generation.

Komaki City belongs to the Aichi Ecosystem Network and the Northern Owari Ecosystem Network Council (participants includeuniversities, NPOs, companies, governments, etc.) along with Seto City, Kasugai City, and Inuyama City. The Inuyama SatoyamaScience Center has been established by Inuyama City as a place to come into contact with Satoyama through exhibitions and hands-on experiences, and to reconsider the relationship between humans and nature. At the Center, the Inuyama Institute of SatoyamaStudies (Director: Dr. Susumu Hayashi), a specified non-profit organization, is developing various activities aimed at forming "Satoyama Studies Created by Citizens." The website manager of Club YAMASAN'chi is also participating as a member.

Club YAMASAN'chi would like to introduce their activities by issuing abulletin, and build connections with fellow members whounderstand the purpose of their activities.
