Yesterday I mentioned Kanazawa-U's need for a web portal for non-Japanese readers interested in our satoyama-satoumi related activities. Here's our current portal in Japanese: http://www.adm.kanazawa-u.ac.jp/satoyama/
At the time of the launch of this portal, we were representing ourselves as an aggregate of various ongoing projects including our "Noto Satoyama Meister" Training Program. By fall last year the "metaproject" has been integrated into the formal organizational structure of Kanazawa University. Now we have the "Kakuma Satoyama Headquarters" at the University Main Campus, and "Noto Operating Unit" at our Noto Gakusha, reflecting our bifocal approach to satoyama research and revitalization.
