Participating in this activity for the ninth time in fiscal year 2020, employees and family members cooperate each year to plant about 700 seedlings.

    Iwate Oshu Kirameki Marathon

    In May 19th 2019, the Iwate Oshu Kirameki Marathon was held under the special sponsorship of the Tohoku Regional Office. It was the first full marathon event held in Oshu City. The courses (10 km and full marathon) were officially certified by the Japan Association of Athletics Federations. As the elevation range was relatively flat at 20 meters or less, runners hoping to set their personal bests flocked to this race from 44 Japanese prefectures as well as from Taiwan.

    Not only was the day blessed with great weather, but with the marathon bringing a record number of runners through, the roadsides were overflowing with cheer, unifying the crowd in Oshu City. Many events were held at the main venue, which was bustling due to the appearance of local heroes. Based on the principle of coexistence and co-prosperity in corporate culture, TTS Iwate strives to bring about a flourishing society that recognizes the importance of harmonizing with local communities.
