Restoration of Amori River (Kokubun City and Hayato Town, Kagoshima Prefecture)

The Kokubun and Hayato areas lying on each side of Amori River were targeted in the "Kokubun, Hayato Technopolis plan" in March 1984 and river improvement work such as invitation of advanced technology developing companies was promoted.
For Amori River, which is an important water/green axis in this Kokubun, Hayato Technopolis district, a "hometown river model project" (the current hometown river improvement project) was started in June 1988 with the catch phrase of "From the past to the future, Amori River, a river of meetings and relaxation," while the water control safety degree between unimproved zones was raised. By taking advantage of the historical features from the age of myth and rich nature, the waterfront space has been improved to become a good place to meet people.
