Tohoku Newsletter Banner October 2013

September 22 marked the arrival of Fall.
October is a great time to visit Japan, as temperatures have lowered but are still warm, and trees begin to change colors in the Northern regions and at higher elevations. We look forward to the full arrival of Fall.

秋分の日も過ぎ、秋が訪れました。
10月は温度が多少下がり始まり、北日本や標高の高い地域では紅葉も始まり、過ごしやすい時期です。先日の台風の後、本格的な秋が訪れたようです。

Our office has been busy with our eight RFP projects moving along - one of which is already completed! A new workshop series at MakiBiz begins this month, and the Kamaishi Park for All project is also moving forward with construction almost ready to begin. Read more below.

We hope this month treats you well, as temperatures begin to lower!
