The forest of black pine Ⅱ

   It is a forest called "Matsubara (forest of "Japanese Black Pine") of the rainbow" here.
   It is said that it was named by the total arc form.  

   Here is
Karatsu-shi, Saga Prefecture.

   Beginning, Terazawa Hirotaka of the feudal lord of the Karatsu feudal clan of the 17th century planted trees as a windbreak forest, and to arrest shifting of the sand.

   The person who felled a tree of this forest became the death penalty.

   The collection of fallen leaves as the fuel was assigned to a severe limit.
   The felling is limited now.

   The black pine lengthens while falling down to the landside by the wind from the sea.

   Pine needles gatherd by the manual labor swells in the ground.

   The part of Genkai Seminational Park. The forest of the black pine spreads out in the shape of an arc for about 5km (3.1Mile) in length.
   Because it dies when grass grows on the land as for the pine, it is weeded and cleaning by the hand of the person.

  1. This forest is very, very the pine takes root and grows well in the sand?

  2. These trees have such interesting shapes and you have done a nice job of photographing them. I have always wanted to visit Japan but have only landed in Tokyo and Okinawa on a couple occasions as I was enroute to and from military assignments in the Far East.

  3. Bonita historia la de estos pinos.

  4. Encantador bosque, donde los troncos parecen que danzan sobre el verde tapiz del suelo y las ramas levantan sus brazos dibujando un marco precioso.
