About the enforcement of law

 When revised Hot Spring Law is going to perform collection (act to draw) of hot spring from October 1, 2008, pertaining to flammable natural gas will have to receive permission of the governor after having taken safety measures.
 But it is decided not to need to receive collection permission when we receive confirmation of the governor about the density of flammable natural gas included in hot spring water being less than standard that Ministry of the Environment establishes.

About the target source, target person

 We are drawing hot spring now or "hot spring collection permission" or "confirmation application of density of flammable natural gas" will be necessary for all company (※) which we are going to draw newly from now on.

※Company is all one where repetition enforces building continuously of hot spring, and others when we offer for public bathing use, drinking like inn and public bath, use of industry for fish farming for the use (we include the joint use in apartment or sale in lots housing complex.) and agriculture for private use are for that repetition builds hot spring in other purposes continuously.
