The article discusses a research study of old Fukugi trees in Okinawa, Japan including several survey sites. Fukugi trees inside Feng Shui villages were surveyed and measured to understand the development process of village houses. It points out that Feng Shui village landscapes with plenty of Fukugi trees planted hundred of years ago are cultural landscapes which should be reevaluated, preserved and utilized as a green tourist resource within the contemporary context.
