The purchase comes at a time the bus terminal and the surrounding area is slated for redevelopment.

The company bought the terminal stock from real estate company RISSI in Tokyo, changing the bus terminal status to “fully owned” by Dai-ichi Koutsu Industry. Izumi Ootsuka, the company’s executive vice president, will handle operations in Naha. The deal gives Dai-ichi Koutsu the two-story terminal building and about 3,845 square meters of land. Okinawa Prefecture owns about 130,000 square meters of land in the same area.

Okinawa Kaiho Bank, which had a claim against the company, sold the land at an auction. Dai-ichi Koutsu bought the claim from Kaiho Bank and then made the successful bikd for the land. “The redevelopment will be possible now by what we get from the bus terminal,” explained Dai-ichi Koutsu of the purchase. The redevelopment project in the area includes new commerce and an office that includes keeping the bus terminal’s functions in Izumizaki.
