Interaction of Geopark network by the geo-story

The Shimonita Geopark located in Southwest Gunma is located in the course which links Kanto to Shinshu. It was the land where a product intersected culture for a long time. On the other hand, a southwest Japanese outer zone and inner zone intersect geologically across the medial line. It is the Geopark where I hid various geological feature phenomena to hold a secret of the Japanese Islands birth in. There are many common stories with other Geoparks simply because it is the Geopark of a miniature garden clogged up with various ingredients of the Japanese Islands.
Through the earth and a connection of the history with the person, it is thought that it has two merits to share other Geoparks and stories. Firstly, The tour visitor between Geoparks can expect it by a guide talking about the story that I shared to a visitor. And it is slightly difficult and can feel the other as the thing which the story of the earth to feel is familiar to by introducing the hometown of the visitor.
In this announcement, I report the common story that we made based on past experience.
