This is an introduction page for "Seiwa no Oka Club".


(This page will be updated little by little)

at first

The Seiwa no Oka Club is a group of residents (affiliated to the Assabu Town Cultural Association) that was born out of the desire to make effective use of the former Seiwa Elementary School, which is a local asset.


The school facilities and their grounds are owned by the town of Assabu. The Seiwa no Oka Club bears the costs of maintaining and maintaining these facilities under a contract, and uses the school building and grounds free of charge.


Utility costs, maintenance, management, and repairs of the facility are covered by members' annual membership fees, event proceeds, cooperation funds, and donations from users.


Is it possible to use it like this? What are the conditions in that case? We accept inquiries at any time. Would you like to use the former Seiwa Elementary School as well?
