The wooden school building of the former Hosomi Elementary School and Nakade branch school in Nakade, Miwa-cho, Fukuchiyama City, Kyoto Prefecture, which was closed in 2002, will be used for the construction of a pavilion for the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo, and the school building will be relocated. A departure ceremony was held on October 14, 2023. Approximately 25 people from the city and local communities attended, including Naomi Kawase, producer and film director of the pavilion's themed business center ''Testimonies of Life,'' and celebrated a farewell to the school building and a new departure.
