Value-Adding to Restore Agriculture―Onigiri Cha-ya Chika-chan

Hello, this is director Tōru Ise.

The Arai area in Sendai’s coastal Wakabayashi Ward was one of many areas severely struck by the 2011 tsunami. Much of the farmland was damaged by seawater. Though there’s still a long way to go toward recovery, after three years local agricultural company Sendai East Country is once again able to operate hydroponics and gardening.

 

This time we visited some women working for the company’s restaurant which is open under the “Sixth Industry” initiative. “Sixth Industry” is a recent catchphrase in Japan referring to primary and secondary sector businesses braching out into value-adding tertiary sector activities (1+2+3=6).
We interviewed them to hear their thoughts.
