FunkyCorp in the News: National Parks

FunkyCorp and Japan’s National Parks

We were really happy to see our work featured in the September issue of National Parks magazine, a publication dedicated to news and research on Japan’s National Parks. We have been working closely with the Ministry of Environment (MOE), to develop English content for the National Parks across the whole Japanese archipelago. According to Senior Producing Editor Jeremy (seen below with Producing Editor Erin at the Akankohan Eco-museum Center), one of the keys to success on these projects is sending the editors on site visits, to hear the opinions of the local park staff first hand.

Research on the ground

Sitting in an office in Tokyo, it can be difficult to fully comprehend the size, scale and appeal of a particular area’s natural environment. Research materials are often limited, too.

Explore like a tourist

To help us understand the parks from an international visitor’s perspective, we believe in getting out there and exploring, from navigating winding forest roads, to six hour hikes to check trail maps in order to design useful signage.

We’re proud that MOE has entrusted us to help communicate the beauty of Japan’s natural environment to a wider audience.
