  • Description

    Description

    We are a sustainable learning center operated by government registered non profit organization in the fishery village of coastal line in Northern Japan. Devastated by massive tsunami of 2011, the town has lost 80% of population but 94 years old wooden school was kept.

    In 2015, the old school was renovated to provide innovative sustainable learning program in nature as well as with locals who have wisdoms to live with nature. We are trying to provide learning opportunities for children, and to create brighter future of this community.
