The forest environment draws out the original sensibility of human beings

The forest environment draws out the original sensibility of human beings

Ochiai: I am hosting an event called "ESD and HL for Children". The word ESD is known worldwide. It is an abbreviation for “Education for sustainable development”.But I do not understand well if translated into Japanese. That's why ESD is not so established in Japan. However, it is necessary moral education for the future era.
Expanded capitalism spreads more and more in the market. As we move forward with development, it has become an era when it immediately affects the global environment. It is bad if there is no point of view to develop sustainably and permanently. Even we adults lack such an idea, so we need such education. However, children are the most suitable candidates for such education.

Ochiai: Take the child into the forest environment and try to touch the forest first. And notice the fun and greatness of nature. Then, study or make them realize how such grace of the forest leads to industry. Let them think about how people's activities affect the environment.To make woodworking experiences and actually touch forest components tie themselves to nature and make various experiences in total. We are doing such child education events ten times a year at forest therapy base throughout Japan.
Its target is children and parents(or relatives). This must be a pair. When I go out with them and see the situation, at first, the child is not like a child, there is no childishness of our time. At the beginning they are doing not a good attitude. Even if you say "Let's do gymnastics", it seems to be troublesome. They do not care about adults first, nor do they listen to what their parents say. On the other hand, parents are careful about their children. There are many such parents and children. However, if you experience ESD event with that therapy experience, the relationship between adults and children will change first. That was one surprise. Respect for adults is born. In short it is released when they are in nature. Contemporary society also seems to have a great stress on children. When it goes into the forest it will probably be released. The original self comes out. Then they will rely on their parents or adults are great, that kind of honest feelings come out. Such changes will appear in just about two hours and will be back in a good parentage relationship. I was surprised at such natural power.

Ochiai: That's what the power of the forest we are saying in the end. Now, by eliminating the stress that we and children have, we can solve almost every problem including modern illness. Stress is leading to most modern illnesses. So now modern diseases, lifestyle diseases, diseases of the mind are prevailing. Through the event I realized that releasing stress will save us considerably. The power of the forest is truly amazing.

Ochiai: The word called “forest bathing” itself was quite new and it was in 1982. It is about 30 years ago. Until then,of course we had the impression that the forest is pleasant place. However, it made it easy to imagine it very much. At the same time it was decided to try to verify it medically from Japan. That is why the International society of Nature and Forest Medicine (INFOM) was completed.
Various things have been learned through medical experiments, such as having a medical effect, getting immune power just by going to the forest, lowering blood pressure or getting stressed out.

What is Forest Therapy

What is Forest Therapy

Ochiai: The way of forest therapy is very succinct. That is using five senses. It is to release the senses. Can you release the senses at this place now? I think that you can not do it. Listen carefully, look closely with your eyes, feel the smell, also sharpen the skin sensation such as wind flow. You can not do it even if you are told to do it in this environment now. It can be done when going into the forest. The point is that environment.
In other words, entering into the forest can make the five senses work at the same time. Then you can hear various sounds and smell a lot, you can do various things at the same time. What we can do is to have five senses open at the same time. That's why stress is released. It is impossible to do so in an artificial environment. That is forest therapy. To say extremely in short, it is that kind of thing.

Ochiai: Just to do that, the medical effect you said earlier emerges.For example,it is amazing that immunity will improve. If the immune power increases by 30%, 40%, it will become a body that will not catch a cold. Or it can become a body hard to become cancer. It is prevention against various diseases by getting stressed. It includes mental illness.

Ochiai: That is the rule of nature. Even though it was not in a normal state with various stresses until then, but it got becoming in a normal state soon.

Forest medicine and sensory organ called mouth

Forest medicine and sensory organ called mouth

Ochiai: When saying the stimulation to the senses received from the forest, sensuousness like mouth seems to be in a special position. When I taste it, I do not understand what the taste is from the forest. It can be understood that eye is related to light,sound is related to ear, smell is related to nose, skin sensation is related to thermal environment etc. However, the relationship between the forest environment and the taste is a bit ambiguous because forest seems to have no taste.

Ochiai: When I think about it, humans body starts from the egg and get out of the intestines. It is the intestines that are first made in our body,then mouth and anus. After all, the structure of a person enters from the mouth and comes out of the anus from the tube structure. So mouth is important as the basic structure of human, not only to eat but also to be the beginning of various cultures and actions. So it is probably the most important thing for children to arrange cuisine and dishes, which is the first step in the code of conduct in human formation and culture. You can say that your mouth is controlling these things.

Ochiai: So preparing meals for children is not an unpleasant task, but rather a fun game and cultural thing. I hope you can link the actions to eat that way to culture.

Idea of forest symbiotic architecture

Idea of forest symbiotic architecture

Ochiai:We are always under stress. Children also do in the same. The only diseases that have been proven to be caused by stress are listed. Stress is the cause of most diseases. This is not known too much. Everyone has an image of some extent that it becomes a mental illness when there is stress. However, there are many people who do not know that it has influences such as angina pectoris and peptic ulcers. So I think you will understand how important it is to get rid of stress,if you see this table.

Ochiai: This is Meiji Shrine of Tokyo.
Such things are in the middle of Tokyo. Humans should originally live in this green part. People should have lived in environmental capsules,such a green capsule. However, We are living in the part that protrudes from there. Then you can see that it is a completely different environment. We feel stressed with this. But everyone can not live in this forest anymore. While living on the protruding side, We have to copy the elements that the green side has. That is the starting point for the idea of forest symbiotic architecture.

Human senses and dwelling

Human senses and dwelling

Ochiai: What is a forest? What is nature? It is human senses to receive and feel the information of the environment.
Therefore, it is easy to understand analyzing the identity of environmental information by dividing it into stimulus signals to the five sensory devices. The most obvious is vision. The forest is full of green light. The reason the leaves are green is because the leaves reflect and transmit the green light in the sun's rays. People who evolved in such an environment feel stressed unless they are as green as possible during the day. When we go to the green place, it feels somewhat pleasant because we are in a state where the genetic structure is oriented.

Ochiai: When thinking about the original human dwelling, it is important to consider how much this green is adopted and how much green light is taken in. However, there is no such idea in contemporary architectural planning. In addition, in terms of important light, in order for human beings to live healthily, we need a mechanism to reset the biological clock every day. For that, blue light in sunlight is necessary. The mechanism to reset the body clock every day by taking a blue light every morning is structured not only in the human body but in all creatures. However, modern dwelling does not have such a function. The light of the sun is used only by the idea of adopting it as energy at the most.


Ochiai: There's one more thing. We turn on electricity as soon as it gets dark in our modern life. It does not happen in the forest. But perhaps our urban environment will be quite bright. This is truly contrary to the natural rhythm. The biological life rhythm and the environmental rhythm conflict.

Ochiai: So in the housing, I think that something like such an interface of light must be secured with considerable importance. When getting up in the morning,blue light will come into your eyes naturally, or in the daytime you must be able to see the green light somehow. And in the evening we can make it dark as it is. Such a construction plan becomes necessary from the viewpoint of light design..
