Aichi Prefecture is expected to request voluntary restraint in traveling outside the prefecture due to the declaration of its own state of emergency in preparation for the second wave of the new coronavirus, but during the Bon vacation when you cannot go out, why not think of a sentence for Iwaya Dam karuta for the whole family and enter it?

Of course, anyone can apply, even if you do not live in the water source or beneficiary area. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and apply for employment.
