We are excited to announce the “Regional Revitalization Design Award,” a project planned and produced by GARDE to celebrate the 140th anniversary of Tobishima Corporation’s establishment.

As part of Tobishima’s 140th-anniversary commemorative project, known as the “Project to Energize Local Regions,” we are calling for innovative ideas to promote the transformation of local regions through LX (Local Transformation). Our aim is to turn these regions into stages for new challenges, including local revitalization, problem-solving, efficiency improvement, and convenience enhancement.
