Thank you very much for visiting our website.

We are very happy that Kominato Railway turned 100 years old in this May.
It sounds like we have long story, but it has been only 100 years. We feel that we finally reached on the starting line.

From the Jomon period, a lot of nature like Yoro river, Japanese oak, birds and insects has been living in harmony with life of human. That is the Satoyama Culture, and is still going on.

As a member of Satoyama Culture, we thank for its benefits and would like to make a connection to the future. That is why the SATOYAMA TOROCCO got started.
Please experience the nostalgic future with your all senses.
