“What's Kemigawa Radio Transmitting Station?”
Walking from JR Shin-Kemigawa railway station for 10 minutes, you'll see ex-Kemigawa Radio
Transmitting Station stands solitarily at the residential area.
“You mean that ruins, don't you?”
"I know it's a well known haunted house."
"No way! Use to be a Radio transmitting station, that's historical one."
The first Radio Transmitting Station in Japan is designed by Tetsuro Yoshida who also worked for
Tokyo and Osaka Central Post Office.
And this was called "White Station House" in the opening year 1926.
It could have a quite rare value since we lost a lot by war damage.
Of course this station had the first call sign ”J1AA”.It helped a lot to develop the wireless
technology of Japan.
In 27th October 1930, the prime minister OkIchi Hamaguchi(1870-1931)
gave a memorial speech for San Francisco and London after disarmament
treaty had concluded in London.
And this was the first overseas broadcast from Kemigawa, Japan. Do you know this story?
So after 77 years, why don't we adventure intellectually now.
We will have an architect and an ex‐colleague as the guests and they will show you something interesting.
Here the "OTsukimi party" on almost full moon night,
Come and Join us!
