Hiroto Kikuchi - Secretary General & Board Member, Iwate NPO-NET Support

Hiroto Kikuchi is the Secretary General and a Board Member of Iwate NPO-NET Support which launched the Kitakami Recovery Support Cooperative in collaboration with Kitakami City in 2011 to integrate all recovery support work at Kitakami city in Iwate. One of the Cooperative’s main activities is The Kitakami Disaster Recovery Station, which participates in conferences and works with industry organizations and major corporations to gather information on the recovery process and share that information through seminars and study groups with the local community. It also provides advice to constituents on how to make use of recovery support systems provided by local municipalities along the Tohoku coast. The Cooperative also works with the evacuee community to nurture a sense of community, to avoid alienation, and to help evacuees become self-reliant. Additionally, in 2010, Kikuchi became the project leader of Kitakami Tourism Association to promote tourism and helped lay the groundwork to disseminate tourism information about the city.
