Cristina and Karl Bengs were awarded Prime Minister’s Award for Community Empowerment (Furusato-zukuri Award). We are the first couple to be awarded in its 34 years history. Our community activities in Taketokoro and Matsudai are highly evaluated.
Ceremony was held in Tokyo on Saturday. Karl was invited for the panel discussion and introduced about reviving kominka and townscape project in Matsudai.
In fact, the ceremony for us will be scheduled later with Prime Minister. We are looking forward to it.
