SDGs Future Cities Maniwa

Aiming to become a model for similar diverse mountainous regions.

About Maniwa

Maniwa is located in the west of Japan, with lush nature and a long history. As an important location on former trade routes, Maniwa has kept its old townscapes, passed down traditional crafts and food cultures, and continues to live alongside Japanese traditions today.
Furthermore, with highlands and natural hot springs bubbling from our rivers – especially “Sunayu”, an open-air onsen for which our Yubara region is particularly known – we have many visitors from across Japan.
With cherry blossoms in spring, cool ravines in summer, coloured leaves in autumn and snow in winter, Maniwa has stunning sceneries year-round.
With a city-wide area of 828km², of which 80% is covered in forest, we are surrounded by nature. However, Maniwa also has an ageing population of 45,000.


Monument of Garbage Shishi-The Wild Boar of Maniwa

With waste management a global problem, we have created “Maniwa’s Boar” using plastic and other waste in SDGs colours from Maniwa City.
Designated a “SDGs Future City” in 2018, Maniwa is using its vast forestry resources and wooden biomass for power generation. We are also aiming to create an environmentally-friendly agricultural system at a low cost, by creating our own fertilizer from kitchen waste, sewage, etc through methane fermentation.
Maniwa is aiming to become a sustainable society through reducing waste, recycling and creating new resources.


Maniwa’s SDGs Initiatives

Of Japan’s 29 “SDGs Future Cities”, Maniwa City stands at the forefront, having also been chosen as one of the 10 “SDGs Model Enterprises” country-wide.
We are implementing a variety of initiatives, such as the use of wooden biomass resources, which in turn have come from a variety of the region’s resources, and turning kitchen waste into other products such as fertilizer. Through other initiatives to protect our rivers and improve tourism, we are increasing cooperation with various parties in and out of Maniwa City, and by creating a supportive population, leading towards sustainable town development.
Our aim is a sustainable developing city, to protect our treasures for the future of Maniwa and the people who live here.


About Maniwa’s Harmful Wildlife Policy

With an area spanning 828km², of which 80% is covered in forest, Maniwa is surrounded by nature. Due to this, there is heavy damage to farmland caused by wild animals, which we expect to increase in the future.
The damage caused by wildlife in Maniwa costs on average 100 million yen per year, and in 2018 the number of wild boars in Maniwa reached 2,536.
In Maniwa, by creating ways in which we can use the meat of these wild animals, we hope to reduce waste and create new resources from what we have.
For this, Maniwa has bought a “Jibie Car”, a mobile slaughterhouse for captured wild animals, and through coordination with local hunters and with local high schoolers who are researching new ways to use game meat, we are creating new inter-regional connections.
