RESTART

At 21:26 on April 14, 2016,
a level 7 earthquake, which is the strongest level on the Japanese seismic intensity, hit the Kumamoto, Kyushu region.
The earthquake caused a large amount of damage in Kyushu, mainly in Kumamoto.
The “Hohi Main Line” from Higo-Ozu to Aso,
which connects to Aso from Kumamoto was also damaged by the earthquake.
It has been four years and four months since then,
and we are finally taking a large step forward.
