Let's protect the beautiful and rich sea and spread the charm

-Preserve the beautiful and rich sea and spread the charm of the sea!Together with those who love the sea! ~

"People gather in the beautiful sea" and "When viewed from the sea, the land is a single landscape with no borders between towns and cities." The LOVE OCEAN project started in 2021 to protect and connect “people to people,” “sea to town,” and “town to town.”The 13 cities and towns from Miura to Yugawara on the coast of Kanagawa Prefecture, which surround Sagami Bay, are called the "Shonan Coast", and we are aiming for wide-area regional revitalization centered on the environment and tourism.In addition, we are expanding the community and network of people who love the sea, hoping that the LOVE OCEAN project will spread throughout Japan, which is surrounded by the sea.

Therefore, we want to disseminate the awareness that collecting "town garbage" is directly linked to "SDGs 14 Protecting the richness of the sea", and we will carry out the "LOVE OCEAN Daisakusen from the city".
