The Opening of Denpaku + Magun
On July 14. 2018, Denpaku + Magun opened its doors, celebrated by the local community.
The project was finally realized after 9 years since Yamashita visited Bethel.
At the opening event, everyone joined in the traditional Hachigatsu Odori dance of the community and the liveliness of the former supermarket seemed to come back.
However, the completion of the facility is not the final goal.
Yamashita and Amami Innovation, his firm that operates Denpaku + Magun, are making a daily effort to improve its operation and various event plans.
The next major goal is to utilize other vacant buildings in the Amami Archipelago and open Magun Plazas in various places.
