“BURNING CORE TOYAMA GAMING BASE” will be used not only as a competition venue but also as an event space, with the aim of developing it as a place that connects Namekawa City and the world.

As the first step in the initiative to connect Namerikawa City with the world, the ``Namerikan School'' was opened to discuss dreams and create ideas for the future of Namerikawa City with students in the city.

This school is a practical school that creates the future of Namekawa by having discussions with various guests and themes each time, incorporating the latest technology and perspectives from outside the prefecture and overseas.

In the future, we will hold events that include international exchange, etc., to expand the horizons of students in Toyama Prefecture and grow into a school where they can have new dreams.

I’m looking forward to the future development of “BURNING CORE TOYAMA GAMING BASE” !

We are a team that connects something with Toyama and creates new businesses together with Toyama. If you define “regional revitalization” as creating a sustainable society by making use of the characteristics of each region in Japan to put a brake on the overconcentration of Tokyo, the “regional awakening” that Toyamato is aiming for is completely different. have a concept Instead of being led by the local government or government, many people with a love for Toyama will rediscover the charm of Toyama, take pride in it, and spread it around the world on their own initiative. Ultimately, the main character is “people”, and I believe that the diversity of people mixed together will enhance the appeal of Toyama.
