2015 Research begins

Since 2015, the Regional Happiness and Culture Project has been conducting research, thanks in part to the cooperation of the Okuono Community Center in Omiya Town, Kyotango City and the Tsuneyoshi Hyakkaten Store which served as local bases for our research.

December, 2015 Regional Workshop

In collaboration with local residents, a workshop on regional social ties and happiness is conducted.

We were also allowed to participate in local events and to interact with the local people.

The Tsuneyoshi Hyakkaten Store

The second regional base for the project is the Tsuneyoshi Hyakkaten Store, which acts as a hub for locals to build bonds with each other.
It stocks local seasonal produce, handmade preserved foods and other unique items that cannot be found elsewhere, and is a place where many people – from children to the elderly – gather.

Activity Monitors are brought to Omiya Town in Kyotango City and observational research on activity levels and regional social ties, research at local bases and paper questionnaire research is conducted.

In cooperation with The Omiya Minami Satojikara Revitalization Committee
