On March 11, 2011, an unprecedented earthquake struck the Tohoku region of Japan.
The Hamadori region of Fukushima Prefecture was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami.
The ensuing nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has wiped out people and towns from the radiation-contaminated area. And Fukushima has been recognized as a bad example by the world.
Eleven years later, although decontamination has been completed and reconstruction has progressed, Hamadori is no longer the vibrant place it once was, and is still dotted with fields that have only been cleared.
But now, young shoots of new energy utilization, electrification of mobility, and research and development of robots and drones are being born here. New Japanese industries will be born here, and young people will come from all over the world to live prosperous lives and support the world. Our mission is to become the center of such new vitality, connecting people to people, technology to technology, and revitalizing Hamadori.
We are a new company creating eVTOL in a scalable way.
