Shizugawa Fishermen's Workplace "Banya" and Oyster Bar(志津川本浜番屋)

Overviewteamupdatesworkspacecalendarfiles 
Building Occupancy / Site Capacity: 
15

A group of 15 fishermen who lost everything in the Great East Japan Earthquake would like to rebuild their workplace and warehouse (called Banya in Japanese) as their new base of the town's fishing industry, which is the key industry of the area. These fishermen previously operated individually, but would now like to bring in each unique experience and idea to rebuild a collective aquafarming business. They hope that the return of fishing businesses will encourage the speedy reconstruction of the rest of the town.
