Odawara City, located in the western part of Kanagawa Prefecture, has a population of approximately 194,000 people and an area of approximately 114 km2. It is the fourth largest city in the prefecture after Yokohama, Sagamihara, and Kawasaki, and approximately 40% of the city area is covered by forests. The Sakawa River flows north-south through the center of the city, forming the Ashigara Plain.The southwestern part is a forested area connected to the Hakone somma, the eastern part is a hilly area called the Soga Hills, and the southern part faces Sagami Bay.
Odawara has a warm climate throughout the year, and agricultural products such as plums and mandarin oranges are popular. Odawara promotes its plains, forests, rivers, and oceans as local assets both inside and outside the city, and in addition to preserving the natural environment, it also increases the number of people who interact with the city. It is also a demonstration area for the Ministry of the Environment's ``Mori-Satokawa-Sea Project Model Project,'' with the aim of expanding the area.


Many visitors to this event were visiting Odawara for the first time, and Maimi Yajima, who served as MC at the opening ceremony, said, ``Having visited Odawara several times for filming this time, I really realized how wonderful it is.'' "I hope that not only people from outside the city will recognize the appeal of Odawara, but also people of the same generation who live locally."
In addition, Mayor Kenichi Kato said, ``I would be happy if many people could learn about the resources and environment that Odawara City values, and make them want to live in Odawara.''


On stage, young people engaged in work that utilizes Odawara's forests will introduce the charm of the work that inherits the culture of wood and craftsmanship, as well as videos of people actually experiencing the life of a small migrant in Odawara. , experiences were shared.
In addition, there was a performance by the baton team "Cherrys" active in the city, and a special live performance by idols belonging to the company, which excited the venue.


At the venue, in addition to exhibitions, product sales, and food and beverage booths by over 50 local organizations, there were also jungle gyms made of wood and a log cutting workshop, allowing many children to get familiar with Odawara trees. I was there.


In addition, as the seventh installment of SATOYAMA & SATOUMI movement's annual collaboration curry, "Japanese style Odawara kamaboko curry" using Odawara kamaboko will also be on sale. In between stages, the entertainers visited various booths and handed out products to purchasers, participated in workshops, and had many other opportunities to interact directly with visitors.




Cities are great, but countryside is great too. Odawara, located just 30 minutes from Shinagawa by Shinkansen, may be the perfect place for this feeling. Also, surrounded by rich nature, agriculture and fishing are flourishing. There are many restaurants that are conscious of local production and local consumption, and the number of people who want to move from the city center to enjoy rich food and a peaceful lifestyle is slowly increasing.

On the day of the event, we asked Airi Suzuki, Makoto, Risa Yamaki (Country Girls), and Svery Mercury (Hello Plan) about their impressions of Odawara.

Airi Suzuki

I have fond memories of going to Hakone on family trips when I was little. I loved stopping at a mandarin orange juice shop in Odawara on the way. I get the impression that Odawara is warm and has many kind people. Today, I received the natural yeast bread that was on display at the event, and it was very delicious. I would like to find more delicious food and good places in Odawara and enjoy it.


The first thing I thought when I came to Odawara was how big the sky was! There are few tall buildings, so you can see the sky and the air is fresh. Odawara's land is flat and the climate is warm, and it can be reached in about an hour by bus from Tokyo. It has a lot of good things and seems like a comfortable place to live for the elderly and people who want to spend their time peacefully, so I recommend it. Well, I prefer places with more rugged terrain, where I can feel the threat of strong natural forces such as gusts of wind. There are forests, and I think it would be great if Odawara's lumber industry would become more active.

Risa Yamaki (Country Girls)

I had previously been to Hakone privately, but this was my first time staying in Odawara for 2 nights and 3 days. Odawara is really full of charm and was fun. I like frogs, and Odawara has a lot of nature, so I think it's nice that frogs can coexist there as well. Odawara is a good place, with good access and not too urban or rural.

Mr. Svery Mercury (Hello Plan)

For me, a native of Minamiashigara City, Odawara has been a big city since I was a child. I was really looking forward to going to Odawara for dental treatment, eating steak, and returning home on the Daiyuzan Line. It is no exaggeration to say that all of my memories from my childhood to my teenage years are in Odawara. Hyakudanzaka near Odawara High School still brings back memories of my youth when I go there once in a while. Odawara has a lot of events, so I feel like there are a lot of fun-loving people here.

Many visitors may have become interested in Odawara at this event, which delved into the various charms of Odawara. Why not come back and visit Odawara with its laid-back atmosphere?


The next "SATOYAMA & SATOUMI movement" is scheduled to be held at Pacifico Yokohama in Kanagawa on March 31st (Saturday) and April 1st (Sunday), 2018.
