The Japan pavilion is inspired by the traditional ecological lifestyle in which garden, farmland and forest are closely connected. The theme ‘Satoyama’ refers to an area that consists of farmland, irrigation ponds, forests and grasslands surrounding cities and towns. The landscapes of Satoyama have been shaped by various human interventions over the course of a long history. The inhabitants are very conscious of natural resources, which has created a rich culture of life in which people live in harmony with the environment.
