Nine years have passed since the Great East Japan earthquake on March 11th, 2020
However, due to the effect of new virus, the number of tourists and visitors has greatly decreased this year.
On the other hand, the weather in the Tohoku region gets warmer, more activities will be enjoyed. So, people can travel more enjoyable in this season, but the number of cancellations have been increased because of a current condition,
Once things settle down, we are going to continue to do reconstruction support as soon as possible.
Long Beach House was opened with local people and producers who encountered through reconstruction efforts of 311 , in Miyagi Prefecture Ishinomaki City where it was heavy damaged by tsumami, in March 2015 as the composite facilities.
It contains a wish for gathering people like before the earthquake, and people from outside of prefecture stopping by.
We operated Spanish guesthouse and restaurant used local ingredients, and regularly proposed and carried out programs which aimed at interaction with locals and activation.
Now, Long Beach House was taken over the management by local people, and renovated, and collaborated with guesthouse, refreshment, and Ishinomaki`s attractive marine products industry. So, it was renewal as a place which local people and people from outside of prefecture could gather.
At present, we extremely focus on tourism to achieve reconstruction.
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 the world visit Ishinomaki. We will continue doing new activities from now on.
In 2015, we built Long Beach House, which both local people and tourists can gather and talk. We served Spanish dishes used local ingredients and held some events to make Ishinomaki City more active and happier
Now, local people manage the facility and make it fascinating. For instance, we can enjoy it as guesthouse, tiny restaurant and the place to tell us fascinating point of Ishinomaki. When you come to Ishinomaki, please come to my house and join us!
Our Guesthouse: Active Life -YADO-
Also, we start new project for disaster assistance with local citizens!
