Greetings, everyone! My name is Saeko Fujii. As someone born and raised in Kamaishi City, Iwate Prefecture, I am a wonderful source to inform you about the city’s many charms. In fact I actually have had contributed to making Kamaishi City a more vibrant place. You see, when I first moved back to my hometown to look after my elderly parents, I saw potential in the ruined farms and immediately set out to work at converting them into cosmos flower gardens. This helped generate a livelier vibe around the city. Wanting to strike while the iron was hot, I proceeded to establish an eatery called "Innovative Farmer Cosmos", so in the hopes it would serve as a casual meeting place for locals and visitors alike. This also enabled me to gain a lot of hands-on experience with the making of delectable dishes using fresh, seasonal vegetables.
With this newfound confidence, I subsequently launched a wood-fire pizza making workshop in March 2016, so that my participants could feel for themselves how delicious pizzas would taste with the use of quality, homegrown ingredients!
