Aim of planning and implementation
This forum will focus on the attractiveness of the Shionomichi, an ancient road that connects the Sea of ​​Japan and the Pacific Ocean, from the perspective of cycle tourism, the potential for community development that utilizes bicycles, and long-term cooperative relationships that span prefectures, regions, governments, and the private sector. It was planned from the desire to think about the shape of The salt road, which is also the stage of our Gravai bicycle adventure event Gravai Camp. Looking back on our activities so far, I would like to talk with the speakers and panelists who will be traveling across prefectures about forming a vision of what kind of “path” we want to create in the future. On the 30th, there will also be a cycling event in the Tatsuno, Okaya, and Suwa areas where the remnants of the salt road remain. If you are interested, please come and visit us!
