湘南国際村とは
誕生
Shonan Village, designed to serve as "a 21st century meeting place for international exchange with accommodations in a rich historical and cultural setting", opened in 1994. Located in the middle of the Miura Peninsula, the village offers breathtaking views of Mt. Fuji in the distance and Sagami Bay below. At present, the Village is home to two research institutes (Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the Graduate University for Advanced Studies), and 11 training facilities (Shonan Village Center, International Productivity Center, Lofos Shonan, as well as other private training centers). These organizations engage in programs with international perspectives, including academic research, human resource development, technology exchange, and cultural exchange.
 Initially, the project area for the Shonan Village was divided into three areas of A, B, and C, and scheduled to be developed in stages. At present, only area A is designated as an area for businesses. Areas B and C have been converted into areas for reforestation and preservation of green spaces, as well as activities utilizing the natural environment.
