Chairman Masato OBATA

Evaluating from nature, geography, a climate, the history, Ibaraki is a prefecture of the high potential. Advantaged in a warm climate, broad flatland, abundant water, it also has a many northern and southern limit of the animals and plants which makes a environment that the various animal and plant can live. Even it is near the Tokyo metropolitan are, it still has the rich nature, and what is more, it is a big merit that it is known as a prefecture with a few disasters.

These years, our prefecture are interested by the people live in metropolitan area as a The place which they can dream of rich life, living with nature. Also, it has enough possibility of development for being a one of the best prefecture which produce agricultural crops in Japan etc.

Regarding a historical background, it is a rich country called as tokoyonokuni written in Fudoki. It is also place of Rebellion of Taira Masakado which became a Turning point from the ancient times to the samurai society and a place of Mitogaku which became a base of the switch from the samurai nation to the modern society.
It also a good example of showing a unique charm of Ibaraki that the British garden city was originally designed from Japanese Kanto area.
