The Forestry Agency has established "Recreation Forests" within national forests across Japan to provide people with the opportunities to enjoy beautiful scenery and rich wilderness in the forest.

As of April 2016, there are 1,055 Recreation Forests designated all over the country.

Among these, the Agency has selected 93 most suitable Recreation Forests for tourist destinations as “Japan’s Forests with Breathtaking Views ~ Selections from the Tourist Destinations in National Forest ~” and strongly (or proudly) recommends to both domestic and foreign tourists to visit.
