Contributing to local communities through information dissemination

We have placed "regional producers" at all 65 stations, who propose and manage plans for regional revitalization to local governments, companies, organizations, etc. We also play a part in creating sustainable regional communities by providing detailed information through locally-based media such as "community channels."

Regional Producer

There are over 100 "regional producers" who are familiar with the region at all 65 stations nationwide. These local producers plan and support events and promotions, and contribute to revitalizing the region by responding to various needs from a perspective that is close to the local area and a perspective that disseminates information nationwide.

Revitalizing local communities through information dissemination (Fukuoka Bureau)

The Fukuoka station is producing a program to recruit local kitchen trucks, whose opportunities to open stores have decreased due to the coronavirus pandemic, and inviting them to the station's premises. We are also making full use of SNS to disseminate information about our store openings to local people, including neighboring businesses, with the concept of ``fun, delicious, and healthy.'' In an area where there are few restaurants, the service was very popular and was enjoyed by 4,800 people in fiscal 2022, as they were able to enjoy freshly prepared meals with a good nutritional balance.
