Regional revitalization utilizing the railway network!

On Saturday, January 21, 2023, we will use the limited express “Liberty Ryomo” to transport fresh vegetables and other agricultural products from Akagi Station in Gunma Prefecture to Kita-Senju Station, the gateway to the northern Kanto region. We sell to our customers. In the Ryomo area, there are issues such as the disposal of vegetables that cannot be shipped because they are not standard, and the lack of successors. One of the purposes is to have people experience a part of the mechanism of consumption and consumption, and we will cooperate with this.
