SHIKISAISYOKU IMAMURA


Team dinner at Shikisaisyoku Imamura at Aitopia Avenue in Ishinomaki. This Japanese restaurant is run by chef/owner Imamura-san who came to Ishinomaki as a volunteer supporting city's recovery from the 311 earthquake and tsunami. While he was working as a volunteer, he decided to stay in this city and make his dream of having his own restaurant come true. Then he renovated a tsunami-affected store with his peers completely by hand using local materials and created an amazingly comfy dining space. It's a quite delightful experience to enjoy the sophisticated local flavor in a space filled with passion, friendship, and hope for the future of Ishinomaki.
今夜のチームディナーは、石巻のアイトピア通りにある「四季彩食いまむら」で。この和食の店のご主人は、震災復興ボランティアとして石巻にやって来た今村さん。ボランティアをしているうちに、石巻に残って自分の店を持つ夢をかなえたいと思うようになった今村さんは、被災した店を仲間と一緒に完全な手作業で改装し、地元の素材を使って驚くほど居心地が良い食の空間を生み出した。情熱と、友情と、この街の未来への希望が詰まった店内で、洗練された石巻の味覚を楽しむのは、実に魅力的な体験。

With Hinako a.k.a.HNB, Art Director of Kotoba Juku and ISHINOMAKI 2.0. And Abe-san, another wonderful chef representing Ishinomaki.
