Takeharu Kato

In 2011, Mr. Takeharu Kato was working in Hakuhodo, but was in search of something more powerful, something with more meaning. He moved to Tsuruoka-city and launched Megurun Inc., a company aimed at promoting the wonder of the region, in particular, Yamabushi-oriented activities and philosophy. Megurun Inc. is dedicated to promoting the local area in a global context. And to promoting the use of renewable energy to enable a sustainable life.
