Green Road Maintenance (Road Length 800m of Nampo)

Translated with (free version)

Project Content

"Nampo Road" is planned in accordance with the Saitama Prefecture Oi Town New Basic Concept Basic Plan (1990) to promote greenery, light, safety, and comfort in the Oi Town Oi-Naima No. 1 Land Readjustment Project.
In order to encourage people to enjoy walking (or running) along the 800-meter long, narrow path along the Sunagawa Moat while taking in the surrounding scenery and the seasons, a number of signs have been placed to indicate the distance and allow people to feel the distance, and natural materials such as wooden decks and gravel pavement have been used to take advantage of the difference in level with the adjacent land. By using natural materials such as wooden decks and cobblestone pavement, the greenway has a variety of expressions. This greenway has been used as a course for the Oi Town New Year Road Race since 1997.
