Tachikawa Culture Factory is starting out by making use of a closed school—a first for the city of Tachikawa. The purpose of this opening project is to inform residents of Tachikawa City and the Tama area of the opening of this facility and the purpose of its activities. This event will provide an opportunity for college students and local residents to interact with each other.
