Nobuko Hashimoto, aka “Hashimoto mama”, is a victim of devastating 2011 Tohoku earthquake and resulting tsunami. In her recently published book, she shares her story about preparing food for over 5000 volunteers in her own kitchen and what impact this had made to her life and volunteers’. She also shares popular tohoku regional recipes that she prepared for the volunteers in this book. The book is written in both Japanese and English.
For those living in Japan, you can order the book from Amazon. Each copy is 1680 yen with free domestic shipping! If you are living outside of Japan, you can order the book from a non-profit volunteer organization It’s Not Just Mud (INJM). For those living in the U.S, you can order the book at Kinokuniya.com.
