Outline

Based in Hojo, Tsukuba, where suffered the Great East Japan Earthquake and the tornado in 2012, we’re trying to activate the community using Kamado, which is a traditional cooking stove. Kamado can make communication though food and the life without electricity. We host Kamado Day, which is an event at which locals gather for Kamado cooking, and Kamado making using clay and straws. We put Kamado on a bike. The point is you can eat delicious rice wherever you want without fuel and electricity, and the Kamado Bike becomes great point of communication.
