Chapter Summary

This section talks about the prewar forest history, prewar studies of Goryōrin, and postwar studies of Goryōrin. The dissolution of Imperial Forest in 1947 enables one to sidestep the history of Japan's forests during the half century to 2000, a topic that is exceptionally fascinating and fully deserving of attention but that introduces major new issues and developments. The next major official treatment of the pre-1940s history, Nihon ringyō hattatsush i, compiled by Ringyō hattatsushi chosakai, gave Goryōrin and its vicissitudes substantially fuller attention, and it proved helpful. Its successor volume, on the other hand, Nihon ringyō hattatsushi, compiled by Dai Nihon sanrinkai, which follows the forest story from the 1920s through World War II, contains very little on Goryōrin. Works on regional forestry have dealt with Goryorin where it was an important part of the whole, most notably in Hokkaido and Kiso.

Keywords: Goryōrin; Hokkaido; Japan's forests; Kiso
