Bise Fukugi Trees


Most of the nearly 250 houses in the Bise district, a village divided like a chessboard, are surrounded by thickly grown Fukugi trees.Scenery seen in such communities is common to Okinawa, where there are many typhoons. Fukugi have been used as windbreaks in Okinawa from ancient times. They were especially planted around houses in communities near the sea. Among the several thousands in Bise, the oldest one is estimated to be 300 years old.
