Selected as a “Regional Future Driving Company”
Summary of the matter
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has selected 2,148 "regional future driving companies" as regional core companies that can serve as candidates for regional economic driving projects.

For us, the content is quite over-spec lol.
It's a small woodworking shop with only about 15 people.
Full of energy and full of energy in Tsubetsu Town
I feel that our attitude to take on challenges nationwide and around the world has been highly evaluated.
I'm really happy.
One more thing I feel.
In Tsubetsu Town and Okhotsk as a whole,
A lot of cool friends and players with high potential have appeared recently,
The “dots” of each of those friends are connected to other “points” to form a “line”,
It has become a ``face'' and is becoming a really interesting area.
All of Okhotsk will become one, and we will continue to cooperate with each other.
I think the atmosphere is starting to look like, let's make our hometown of Tsubetsu and Okhotsk look older.
Now that the number of friends has gradually increased,
I think we can really do it with our friends from Okhotsk.
We also want to be part of that power.
Together, we want to make this precious hometown even more popular.
That's my feeling.
Continuing with everyone in Tsubetsu Town, Okhotsk, and
Thank you for your support of Yamagami Woodworking!
