My name is Akira - I have a travel company in Tokamachi, a beautiful town located in Niigata prefecture.
Had worked in sales for nearly 10 years after graduation. While visiting Tokamachi for business frequently, I met various people and participated Japan Community Revitalizing Program there from 2015.
During working as JCRP participant, I always asked myself: “Isn’t it so hard for just an employee of a company to change the community? What is really needed for this town?” Thus, I decided to start up a company with the team members who share the same vision - to share the beauty of the local culture of Tokamachi with people from all around the globe.
