“Forest of Tataraba” takes place in mountainous Sainin regions of Japan during the Edo era.
The game is all about the coexistence of the forest and ironwork: the players repeat the simple cycle of planting trees, nurturing the forest, cutting wood, and producing iron. tatara ironwork is a traditional way of making iron.
The method consumes large amounts of coal,which leads to the need for mass logging. The long-term preservation of forests is essential for the continuous production of iron. It is said that in the Sainin region, logging and tree-planting were conducted back-to-back, allowing the ironwork process to coexist with the preservation of the forest.
