Sekino-o Park has been loved by many citizens and tourists as a park where you can enjoy rich nature, including Sekino-o Falls, which is a representative scenic spot of Miyakonojo City. Since it is mainly for tourists, there was a problem that it was difficult to connect to the revitalization of the local economy. Therefore, Miyakonojo City aims to use the nature of the park as a new tourist base, and plans to reopen in 2024 as a campsite directly managed by the outdoor manufacturer “Snow Peak”.
In this project, we are soliciting donations in order to maintain the renewed campsite as a facility that conveys the charm of the region. The collected donations will be used to develop a restaurant that promotes the appeal of local specialties and a management building with local product booths.

3. Ibusuki City, Kagoshima Prefecture [Unique hot springs in the world] I want to restore the Ibusuki sand steamed hot springs with a superb view!
“Sand Bath Onsen,” where you bathe in sand heated by hot springs, is the best tourist resource in Ibusuki City, Kagoshima Prefecture. The city owns two sand bath hot spring facilities, but the slope behind one of them, “Sayauri,” collapsed in November 2021, and is currently unable to operate.
In this project, in addition to the restoration work of the collapsed slope, the surrounding area will be restored and maintained in an integrated manner, such as setting up a promenade that allows you to go back and forth between Sayuri and the adjacent open-air bath Tamatebako Onsen. So, aiming to be more crowded than ever, we are looking for donations.

The area, which includes the sand steamed hot spring “Sayauri” and the adjoining open-air bath “Tamatebako Onsen” with a spectacular view, is a wonderful place full of energy with hot springs gushing out everywhere.
