Onga River Pump Station


Built in 1910 on the east bank of the Onga River. It served, and still serves, to deliver 

industrial water to Yawata via an 11.4 km pipeline. This supply is integral to the steel 

production process and was necessary to cope with the 1st phase expansion of the 

Imperial Steel Works. The site has been registered on the UNESCO World Heritage,

Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution
