Would you like to live and work in the rich nature of Tohoku? It is not people who heal people, but nature. In order to live in balance, this program proposes living and working in the nature of Tohoku as one of the two or three bases of life.
We do not use the word "work vacation" because our life is not a vacation. On the day of the program, we will welcome guests from areas where people are living in abundance with nature, and introduce the charm of each area.
In this session, we would also like to hear from engineers about what they need when living in multiple locations and what criteria they use when choosing a region. It would be great if as many engineers as possible could get a chance to know the appeal of the region and build new relationships with the Tohoku from here.
