About "Outdoor GIENTAI"
"Outdoor GIENTAI" was formed at the time of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, occurred in the southern part of Hyogo Prefecture on January 17, 1995, and provided humble contributions that we could make at that time. This time, the damage is more widespread and will require a long-term support, but we believe it's important to start with what we can do now. We appreciate all your assistance and contribution.
