What they’re saying

In the event of disasters, ensuring a means of communication for prefectural residents and tourists was an issue. Following the completion of the construction of the base for this development project, we anticipate that this free Wi-Fi will also be used during ordinary times for tourism and for educational purposes at educational facilities.
