The "Seiwa Hill club" is a group of residents (groups belonging to the Assabu Town Cultural Association) that are born out of the desire to effectively utilize the old, Seiwa Primary School, which is a regional property.


Under contract, the school building and site will be leased free of charge from Assabu-cho, and the club will be paying maintenance and repair expenses on its own. (The contract with the town is posted on this page)
