Visiting those disaster-affected areas will help restore the community

(by Syunji Hashimoto, factory manager of Hachinohe Ice Making, Hachinohe, Aomori Prefecture)
While I managed to resume shipping my products from the middle of March, one of the marine products companies with which I do business suffered significant damage due to the earthquake and an event to be held at a hotel was canceled as a result.  However, tourist facilities around Hachinohe area are getting back on their feet.  Although you might feel hesitant to visit our town for sightseeing, it’s one of those things that help restore disaster-stricken area.
