In order to reconstruct economy, creating new job opportunities is the first step. Since Motoyoshi region is specialized on salmon fishing and breeding, Groundwork organized the necessary equipment to manufacture smoked salmon. This was the first step to create a new industry. Meanwhile the Locals received advanced education in workshops.
From 11.30 – 12.04.2011, Mr. Otani in cooperation with the local inhabitants built a smokehouse. At the following ceremony everybody was invited to taste the first smoked salmon. The fish was delicious and everyone was happy.
This kind of efforts satisfies us always very much.
