Work Experience

Oji Factory: Providing Facilities in Oji-Cho as an Emergency Evacuation Site in the Event of a Disaster

Oji-cho in Nara Prefecture is located between the Yamatogawa River and Katsugegawa River. There is a very high risk of flooding here during the flood season due to heavy rain, and so disaster prevention measures are an important issue. In March 2021, Nichias signed an agreement with the local government of Oji-cho to use the Oji Factory facility as an emergency evacuation site for neighboring town councils in the event of a disaster.
