to paraphrase:

Moriya (Ultralight) Airstrip was evidently founded in 1985 on the floodplain of the Tone River, on land leased from private owners. Primary users were the Moriya Flying Users Club (about 40 general aviation enthusiasts), as well as helicopter operators Asahi Koyo and Japan Flight Safety for training purposes. However, the land was purchased from the previous owners by the Tone River Office (Kuki, Saitama) for use as a flood easement - Inatoi Reservoir (which is now visible adjacent to the remaining N-S runway).
