IC Industrial Park
Otofuke is located in the middle of the Tokachi Plain, which is said to be the granary of Japan, and is a thriving agricultural city. It has also developed as a bed town in Obihiro City, but from the standpoint of securing employment in the town, we planned the establishment of an industrial park adjacent to Otofuke Obihiro IC, and began selling it in 2000. At first I was thinking of attracting food factories that process agricultural products in Otofuke, Doto Expressway Yubari ~Shimukappu With the opening in between, the number of locations and inquiries from logistics companies has increased, such as the establishment of a logistics center for a major company from the time when the Hokkaido and Eastern regions were directly connected. Otofuke-cho is located approximately halfway between Sapporo and Kushiro, so it was used as a relay base for distribution routes in both regions, and at the end of last year, the sales ratio was about 92%.
In Otofuke-cho, we are also focusing on sightseeing mainly in Tokachigawa Onsen. Bus tours for tourists in the direction of Sapporo and Asahikawa have been well received. At other events, customers from Kitami and Kushiro increased. Expressway The effect of the maintenance is also reflected in tourism promotion. Expressway If further development of Otofuke continues, we believe that Otofuke can be a base for a wide-area network that includes not only Hokkaido and Kushiro but also Hokkaido and Okhotsk. Doto Expressway 4 lanes are desired. In addition, Otofuke Town is considering installing a smart IC near the Tokachigawa Onsen to revitalize the region.
Dramatically improve customer attraction by opening Aqua Line
Recently, inbound effect
Mr. Masatoshi Sato
Mother Farm is a nature-rich tourist ranch where you can enjoy interacting with animals, an amusement park, and the flowers of the four seasons. Tokyo Wan Aqua-Line Expressway If you use, you can come from Tokyo / Yokohama in 1 hour to 1 and a half hours. In recent years, the inbound effect has also appeared in our farm, and there are many foreign customers coming from JR Kimitsu Station on the first route bus in the morning. Since the opening of Aqualine in 1997, the number of visitors from the Kansai area has increased, and the number of visitors exceeded 1 million the following year. In 2009, Kimitsu PA Smart IC was established, making it even more convenient. Expressway I feel that the effect of maintenance has come out. The phrase “Kimitsu PA Smart IC is useful!” Is also an advertisement for Mother Farm.
NEXCO EAST Planning a stamp rally in cooperation with tourism facilities in the Minamiboso area, placing a pamphlet on the PA, and launching a tourism PR booth in the “Umi Hotaru” in collaboration with the local Futtsu City, etc. We are strengthening cooperation. The Mother Farm also hosts night events such as summer fireworks and winter illuminations. If you can spend your time slowly Expressway I think that it will help to eliminate traffic jams, NEXCO EAST But I'd be happy if you could promote it.

Koriyama City, Fukushima Prefecture
New IC will bring further flow of people and goods and industrial development
Koriyama Chuo Smart IC Out-bound Line (front)
Koriyama City Tohoku Expressway And Banetsu Expressway are crossed, Joban Expressway And Kan-Etsu Expressway It is a strategic point of high-speed transportation that connects with the other. If you use the Shinkansen, it is the fourth shortest from Tokyo Station, and it takes about 80 minutes to access from the city center. The development of ring roads in the city is progressing, and we believe it is the best place for corporate activities. In January 2019, the 5th Koriyama Chuo Smart IC will be opened in the city, and further improvements in convenience are expected.
The smart IC and the city area are connected by a highway, and access to commercial facilities, cultural facilities, emergency hospitals, and the first and second industrial parks in western Koriyama has been improved. Exchange population Large In addition to the establishment of new logistics bases and commercial facilities through the flow of goods, it will lead to the development of the sixth industrialization utilizing rice from Koriyama, grapes for brewing, and grapes that boast the largest shipment in Japan. I have high expectations.
What I consider as a future issue is the improvement of the area around the IC and the effective use of land. Development around ICs contributes to the diversification, efficiency, and facilitation of transportation and transportation, such as efficient use of parks and rides and transport vehicles, and has great potential. We have just deregulated land use around IC, and would like to encourage the utilization.
