Adventures on our Journey to Onagawa

Today our whole Nozomi team (minus one staff member with a sick daughter) travelled by train on a very cold day to visit our sister organization, Megumi Project, in their beautiful new space in Onagawa.  

Isn't our Nozomi mascot too cute?

We love Megumi Project's new place in the Promenade!  It is beautiful space, with amazing repurposed kimono products as well as lovely items from other Onagawa vendors.

We loved seeing the photo of our co-worker, Lora, on the front door!  

We split into two groups, enjoying lunch at an italian restaurant nearby.

Unfortunately, we missed the once-an-hour-or-so train back, and so had to call two of our Be One team to come and pick us up!  The wait gave us a few last minutes to enjoy Onagawa...and being together.

Love our Nozomi women, and the work and the beautiful presence of the Megumi Project in Onagawa!
