Background of the fundraising project
Comment from Shiho Umemori, representative of ume,yamazoe
ume, yamazoe is a hotel limited to 3 groups in Yamazoe Village, Nara Prefecture, which opened in March 2020.
In order to further shape the idea of ​​“creating a place where ‘all kinds of people’ can be calm and kind, regardless of disability, illness, gender, religion, or age,’ which was upheld at the time of opening, last year, “HAJIMARI”, an accommodation invitation day for those who have and their loved ones, has started.

In 2022, HAJIMARI welcomed 11 families of 48 people.
Many families are traveling for the first time, and seeing how happy they are, I am convinced that such places and times are very much needed and absolutely necessary in “people’s lives.” Did.
On the other hand, while listening to the story, I was keenly aware that there are still few leisure options for people with disabilities and illnesses.

I want more people to be happy.
I want to make travel and leisure a natural option, even if I have a disability or illness.
It was an initiative that we started with what we could do, but we started to want to aim for a bigger goal, like creating a culture. I realized that in order to make a larger circle, it was necessary to expand the acceptance facilities and create a system. Therefore, in order to build a more stable operating foundation, we decided to establish an operating organization and conduct fundraising. [Image 12

First, we separated the organization from ume, and established a voluntary organization, HAJIMARI (we are considering becoming an incorporated association as soon as preparations are complete). ▼Details about the voluntary organization HAJIMARI

In addition to compiling the information necessary for basic operations, such as consolidating the necessary hardware and software knowledge for welcoming people with disabilities and illnesses, it is also necessary for continuing to work stably. We aim to secure financial resources.

The charity event and crowdfunding that we will be announcing this time is exactly the first challenge to secure financial resources. It is an action that creates a new group and goes a little beyond the management activities of one inn.
I am also very nervous because there are many things that I am doing for the first time.
I hope that this activity, which has continued to move even if it is small, will someday become the origin of a big swell.
If you are interested, I would be happy if you could cooperate. [ume,yamazoe x Chef Fumio Yonezawa Charity event to enjoy seasonal delicacies] Reception method and other detailed information
