Tamura Night – A party to learn about Tamura City while enjoying its food – *Held in Tokyo on Saturday, June 1, 2024! *
Tamura City, Fukushima Prefecture, a highland town located in the center of the Abukuma Highlands with 70% of its area covered by forest, will be holding an exchange event in Tokyo with the theme of “telework/workation.”
If you are interested in working and raising children in an
environment surrounded by nature without changing your current career, or if you are interested in telework/work, please join us!
Tamura City is a mountain city located a short distance from central Fukushima Prefecture towards the Pacific Ocean. It is easily accessible from Koriyama City, the second largest city in the Tohoku region, by train or car in about 30 minutes, and has a rich natural environment supported by satoyama culture, as well as local folklore and history. Tamura City is characterized by its abundance of resources and attractions.
The last Tamura Night was a combination of “Nature & Entrepreneurship”. We welcomed two guests who are taking on a new challenge, and invited participants to interact on themes such as “moving from the city to the countryside” and “activating themselves in the countryside,” and enjoy dishes made with ingredients produced in Tamura City. It was a very fulfilling meeting.
▼The state of the previous Tamura night
This time’s theme is “Telework/Workation”. In the past few years, flexible working styles that allow people to work anytime and anywhere have become established, and workcation, which allows people to take vacations while working, has also gained attention.
We will have a couple as guests who have achieved “relocation to rural areas and telework,” and they will talk about “telework lifestyle,” “differences in life before and after migration,” and “raising children in rural areas.” In addition, for those who would like to try telework or workcation in a rural area during summer vacation, we will introduce facilities and subsidies that allow telework or workation in Tamura City. Why not use this event as an opportunity to plan your work and vacation this summer?

While working as a staff member at a community space, he works as a freelance illustrator, manga artist, and writer.
