The Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011 caused great devastation among users of Ubiregi. Our wish to alleviate the stress on Ubiregi users and contribute to the recovery of the stores affected by the disaster, inspired us to start a “Business Recovery Support Program for Enterprises Affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake” in April, 2011.

The “Tokishirazu – Northern Cuisine” building was completely destroyed and swept away by the tsunami in March. In December, they received support from the Organization for Small & Medium Enterprises and Regional Innovation, an independent administrative institution that provided them with a guaranteed temporary location. Although this allowed them to plan for reopening their business, there were still previous lease payments that remained outstanding. At this point, they were at a loss, unable to obtain a new lease on yet another expensive POS system. Just as they were looking for a solution to their problem, they came across Ubiregi’s article on the “Business Recovery Support Program for Enterprises Affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.”

About “Tokishirazu – Northern Cuisine”

“Tokishirazu – Northern Cuisine” is a seafood bar located in Ofunato-cho, Ofunato, Iwate, Japan, and is specializing in fresh seafood brought in directly from Hokkaido. It was founded in March 2010, and almost one year later, they were affected by the tsunami, losing absolutely everything. They reopened in December 23, 2011, and are using Ubiregi for their cash register.
