What KAIYUKAN treasures
kaiyukan The guiding principle of Kaiyukan is based on the theory, “The Gaia hypothesis” advocated by British scientist James Lovelock, which proposes that “all organisms and their inorganic surroundings on Earth are closely integrated to form a single and self-regulating complex system.”
“The Ring of Fire” is the circum-Pacific volcano belt which surrounds the Pacific Ocean. It overlaps “The Ring of Life” with its high-density biodiversity.
With the concepts suggested by these two “Rings”, Kaiyukan recreates natural environment around the Pacific Ocean as faithfully as possible.
It is our sincere hope that all the visitors feel and reconsider the preciousness and wonder of life and the importance of nature environment all round us.
