Isatomae, a small tsunami-stricken community in Tohoku, is in a critical moment whether people can rebuild their own community-based economic activities or become totally dependent on other remote communities, since financial aid to such a small community from the Central Government is too small to rebuild their own economic activities.
People in Isatomae are trying to generate a circulation of money inside their own community, as it used to before, by building a large-sized tent in which shops can be restarted. The tent will become the first place for local people to drop money in their own community as well as to create employment for local people. Now, it is becoming the center of gathering for local people, and started encouraging themselves to rebuild its own local economy.
This tent will give hope for people to restart their economic activities, keep the Isatomae community economically active and generate a base of rebuilding the community itself. Otherwise, it will simply lose one of key functions of a community by losing people to places where employment is available.
