New Tohoku Initiative Expert Panelist

JI CEO Ruth Jarman serves as an expert on a panel of three for the New Tohoku Initiative.

This initiative aims to support Northeast Japan’s revival and reconstruction following the devastation of 3.11.2011.

Ruth is pictured here with Deputy Reconstruction Minister Tachibana and other New Tohoku initiative participants. The New Tohoku initiative is part of the effort by the Reconstruction Agency to help local entities create tours and activities for international visitors.

Ruth and the JI Team are committed to offering good advice, feedback and participating in reviews, etc., to help make this effort as successful as possible. We hope more and more international visitors will consider visiting this beautiful and historically rich area of Japan. Oh, and the seafood is great too!
