An All-Terrain for All Our Sandy Needs!

Sendai Toyopet - 30 Years of Support
Sendai Toyopet - 30 Years of Support

Toyopet in Sendai has been a longtime supporter of OISCA activities in Japan for the past 30 years. This summer, Toyopet has helped supply a Toyota Vanguard 4WD for the general transportation of the team of disaster-affected locals of the Coastal Forest Restoration Project.

Before this vehicle was purchased, the team used an old, unreliable two-seater pick-up truck that could not reach distances outside of the local neighborhood nor survive in the sandy field site. With their new Toyota Vanguard, the team will be able to quickly go to the station, store and supporters for their daily needs and reports. But most importantly, they will be able to go to the field planting site more frequently because the Toyota Vanguard’s 4WD is more suitable for the sandy trails and more resistant to the strong winds.

In 2014, the nursery seedlings will be transplanted at the mound field sites. With this new, fast and strong means of transportation, the Coastal Forest Restoration Project will save time and energy on simply getting from place A to place B, and will be able to spend that extra time and energy on restoring their coast, one seedling at a time.

The Toyota Vanguard will arrive in mid-October. It is silver metallic, can accommodate 5 people, and has a large trunk storage area.
