TOKYO – Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson and delegates on the 2013 Forestry Asia Trade Mission had an action-packed first day in Japan.

Mission delegates toured the Unsourire Nursing Home, a 4,700-square-metre wood building under construction near Tokyo. When completed next year, the nursing home will be the third-largest platform frame building of its kind in Japan. The project is expected to use about 940 cubic metres of dimensional lumber, equivalent to the amount used in 45 single-family homes.
