In last July we stopped running Long Beach House, but the name has changed to “Active Life -YADO-“ as a guest house. If you have an opportunity to come to Miyagi prefecture, please come to our new house!

These days, the number of natural disasters has been increasing. In recent time a huge storm hit Japan in September 8th. Especially the storm damaged Chiba prefecture. The electricity and the water supply were cut off for days in Chiba.

So, we are just making project for such a natural disaster. We continue hanging in there for security in Japan! We wish that people from over Japan and world will visit Ishinomaki. We will continue doing new activities from now on.

     We have an announcement to you. Thanks to your donation and kind support, we did open the composite facilities “Long Beach House” as a symbol for revival in Ishinomaki-city, Miyagi-prefecture on 14th March 2015. We really appreciate your continuous support since the start of construction till the opening day.


     This project carried out with the aim that “Long Beach House” is a symbol for a recovery from the big earthquake and Tsunami. Now, construction has finished so we are planning various programs which Miyagi people can exchange with people who are not from Miyagi. From now on, we manage the facility for the purpose of mental care for the people who suffered from the disaster centering on “connection with people”.We also hope making use of our facility leads to the reconstruction of the suffered local community.


     With this in our mind, we decided to move our project to the next stage.Planning and holding various programs is necessary to accomplish our goal , “connecting people”. However, because of shortage of funds, these programs may have limitations in aspects of circularity and frequency, or there may be a risk that only small events can be held.

     So we launched a new project on globalgiving for the new purpose.

Please check out our new project, click here;

     We will show you details and the use of donations on the page. We inform you of the situation of “Long Beach House” every three months by project reports, so we are very grateful if you keep checking our project continuously.


     Again, we would like to express our appreciation for your kind understandings and supports from the start of this project.We ask for your continued corporation and support.

"Construction Project report 7 of "On the road Watanoha base"

       In March, we started to use all the staffs of “Long Beach House”, andday after day made trial menu. We held the opening ceremony splendidly on 14th. Regardless of outside Miyagi prefecture, a lot of people came here. We have opened the restaurant for regular hours from the next day. It was a hurried reception on the first day, but staffs got used to work till the end of the month. Some repeaters came and said “a lot of fun here”, which gave us power. The visitors totaled 198 from the opening day to 31th.

     In April, 358 customers came to Long Beach House. Some visitors from neighborhood dropped in and had a drink while they ware out for a walk. On the other hand, we held a concert on one regular holiday. It got quite lively.

     334 customers came to Long Beach House in May. Guest house was finally opened! Customers who are out of Miyagi prefecture gradually visit here. We have three types of room; double, twin and dormitory. We have a problem that a few people know our restaurant and guest house so we took some photos of foods in order to put them on a webpage and flyers. We are going to put effort into advertisements of Long Beach House because we want a lot of people to know about it.

Thank you for your continuous support.
It has been 4 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami caused enormous damage in Thoku area.We deeply think that the disaster must not be forgotten.
"Long Beach house", the complex of Spanish restaurant and guest houses we have built in Ishinomaki City, Miyagi Prefecture will be opened on 14th march 2015 as the symbol of the restoration with local people.
This project you have funded since we started after the disaster will be completed soon.
Through GlobalGiving, many people gave us financial supports.
However, the money for the interior decoration of Long beach House is still not enough.
For transmitting Ishinomaki's appeal to the world and revivng,  we are offering money for interior decoration of Long Beach House.
It is a very long way to the perfect restoration. We ask for your kind cooperation.
And one more thing, we would really appreciate if you could spread information sbout this project to people around you.
We will upload reports about our activities on this website at all times.
We kindly asked for your continued efforts.
From all the staff at On The Road

In October, architects visited the base and had a meeting with a construction company. The construction of sash, exterior and inside wall and a ceiling were managed. We also did the electrical work. And the water supply, drainage system and a modular bath were installed. The construction of the first floor proceeded.


In November, the painting by volunteers began. The steel-frame on the first floor, stairs, a banister, a kitchen and the inside of the lodging facilities were finished. After that, the installation of kitchen equipment and plumbing work went well. The electrical work also progressed. A total of 92 volunteers took part in this month.


In December, we installed wooden fittings, water use instrument and electrical fittings. The stove and air conditioner were also installed. We put a finishing on the painted part. A total of 73 volunteers who are from both inside and outside the prefecture including local people took part in this month. The paintings by these volunteers were completed; the east side of the lodging facilities, lounge, the first floor’s bathroom, linen room, office and the rest of the outside steel-flame were over. We are starting to make furniture now.
