* ''Manga/HotarubiNoMoriE'' uses such woods as its principal setting, with all the spirits, monsters, mysteries and romance that implies.

** Really, most of Alaska that isn't so far north as to be tundra. At least in the summer when it isn't all under six feet of snow. Outside of Anchorage, there aren't any cities larger than about 32,000 people, and even Anchorage is anywhere from a 15 minute to hour drive (depending on where in Anchorage you live) to nearby mountains fit for hiking in the summer.

* Numerous games from the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' feature this trope as well In ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' practically the whole Kingdom of Windor consists of Ghibli Hills, with only a few sizeable settlements and cities interrupting this perfect idyll.

Named for the lush, friendly settings of StudioGhibli films. Which largely stems from the fact that Mitaka and Musashino, Tokyo's affluent residential suburbs where the studio itself is headquartered, [[note]]To the point that Creator/HayaoMiyazaki is {{Fan Nickname}}d as The Lord of Mitaka.[[/note]] generally have [[WriteWhatYouKnow exactly that kind of scenery.]]

* ''NiNoKuni'' also features this - and given the fact that StudioGhibli helped with the designs, it stands to reason.

** The city of Ba Sing Se has a large agrarian zone between the outer wall and the city proper that looks like it would come straight out of a StudioGhibli film (which is weird considering [[PatchworkMap it's a barren wasteland right outside the wall]]).

* Also in Spain, its capital {{UsefulNotes/Madrid}}. Not only it is stated to be the second city in number of trees of the world surpassed only by Tokyo, it has west of its downtown a big park, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casa_de_Campo Casa de Campo]] as well as the extensive [[https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monte_de_El_Pardo Monte de El Pardo (link in Spanish)]], a big forest inhabited by endangered species[[note]]That most of it is closed to the public helps a lot[[/note]]. It's quite an experience to transverse it by train -it's crossed by a railway- and to see from your seat deers and the occasional eagle in the middle of an extensive oak grove.

Often paired with AdventureTowns, this area consists of the entire relatively pristine wilderness outside of TheCity. Urban sprawl is not much of an issue, especially if you just start building your cities ''up'' (or underground). An hour's drive from your house can take you to a place that's virtually a national park.

* A lot of Russia was like this, thanks to Communism deciding that everyone should live in Apartments (better equality and opportunity for spying on each other) making very condensed cities with surrounded by pristine countryside. Less so now.

** Pretty much any Russian city has at least one big park that transitions into (almost) intact wilderness. Bonus points if the park has been abandoned for a few years.
** A lot of Russians love walking in the forests, or come from villages where forest (or ''taiga'') is an important part of your daily life. Many take treks into forests to recover from the daily grind, and some actually cannot live a normal life without spending an hour in a pristine birch grove[[note]]Birches are particularly loved by Russians. They are considered to take away pain and restore strength[[/note]].

** Falkreath hold in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]], more classically. There are only two settlements in the entire hold (Falkreath itself and the ruined city of Helgen), the land is sprawling with forests and animals, and the main industry seems to be logging.
