Japan’s Modern Steel Works history started here. Yawata was a rural village with a small
population of agriculture and fishing industry. And this place was decided in Parliament as
the Japan’s Modern Steel Works construction site in 1897.
At that time, there were no construction machineries, the Steel Works was constructed
with human power in just 4 years.
