Kojirahama, the central village of the Toni area, is a naturally sloping landscape site. The village depends on its fishing industry for its livelihood. The wooden buildings of the elementary and junior high schools are built separately taking advantage of the site’s multi level terrain. By working with the natural landscape and cutting down the amount of excavation to a minimum, the buildings’ construction period has been shortened. Also, buildings in harmony with the contour of the land, now a historical community, has been awarded the Good Design Special Award in 2018.
