About The Tokyu Foundation for Better Environment

The Tokyu Foundation for Better Environment was established in August 1974 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Tokyu Corporation. Tokyu Corporation was inaugurated in 1922 after it spun off from a company specializing in housing development in southwest Tokyo along the banks of Tama River and in the Denen-Chofu, Senzoku, and other areas. Since the major business base of Tokyu Corporation has been concentrated in the Tama River basin, the then Chairman Mr. Noboru Goto decided to establish a Foundation with the objective to “improve the environment of the basin” as a token of his appreciation for the local community.
