The Sea Forest is the area of landfill(disposal) ground located in Odaiba(Marine Park development area within the Tokyo Bay) with the volume of disposal, total weight of 123,000 tonnage which was stored in total of 14 years started during the year from 1973 to 1987. The Sea Forest park has the size of approximately 88 hectares, about 19 times the size of Tokyo Big Egg, baseball park in Central Tokyo. The project will take 30years and targeted to produce ‘Clean and Green’ forest of land.

The Sea Forest has 3 major objectives

1. Wind Passage

Creation of a wind passage into Tokyo metropolitan city center area which eventually causing the heat-island effects. The park will be the origin of wind passage of that purpose.

2. Recycling for Soil

Along with creating compost from pruned branches and leaves from Tokyo’s city parks and street trees, soil for the forest will be created by using waste soil from water purification plants.
