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!
ON THE ROAD Disaster Relief Team
Volunteer Leader Training Camp ~Let’s be a Master of Disaster~
From May 11th to 12th, we held the camp for the first time. Many people joined this event and learned about disaster prevention and reduction.
We are going to introduce these activities in this website!
In December, we invited three musicians who were famous in Miyagi prefecture. All these musicians had different characteristics, so audience really enjoyed these various atmospheres. Not only regular customers but also new ones were able to understand Long Beach House more and more!
All participants had a great time.
In January, we held a music event which young hip-hop artists introduce their music and atmosphere. It was 5thtime to make these kinds of events. It was a good opportunity to know how much power music has. Actually, about 60 people come to see this concert. We would like to create a place where many people can feel free to use.
At our restaurant, we tried to improve our quality of service. For instance, we want to communicate a lot with other workers in order to serve customers dishes as soon as possible. We will never give up in order to make high quality of service.
In September, we opened up a shop at a festival in the Kanto region and held an ongoing event“Hoya (sea squirt) night” which we present our local specialties. We also held the Imoni party which especially people in northeastern do for eating soup with various types of vegetables including taros and drink together in autumn.
Those kinds of local events are very popular so we would like to continue increasing various types of events more in the future.
In October, we opened up 2 shops at the city event and also held many kinds of events like a flea market and flower arrangement. We also enjoyed lunch time together after the event.
In November, we invited DJ from Ishinomaki city and held the event with music, food and beer. Young people and new customers also joined us and we all had a good time together.
In June, we invited the director of on the road and held the talk show at the long beach house. He was having a talk event tour visiting 47 prefectures and the long beach house was used as the Miyagi venue of the tour.
In July, We had the biggest festival called “Ishinomaki River opening festival”. Many people visited and they enjoyed our food.
In August, We held an event at a small bar in the city street in Ishinomaki. We enjoy the event until the late night.
We wish that people from all over Japan and world will visit Isinomaki. We will continue doing new activities from now on.
