The topic of Ms.Asanome was Pay it forward. For the first time I knew this word. This concept is continuing a chain of good deeds from others. What kind of hospitality are you going to show to others?

From Sorachi Sub-prefecture of Hokkaido and she moved from place to place due to her parents’ job within Sorachi District in her childhood.
In 1995, she somehow applied for a welfare volunteer position for Sapporo Snow Festival, which was the start of her career and she came to realize and find much of interest in “intriguing welfare” by seizing the same society through different points of view.And then, she has been involved in “Welfare volunteer house for Sapporo Snow Festival” by being concerned with Mobility Support Services.
She is mainly engaged in home care support furthermore in-home care, and employment support so that challenged people can live life their own way. In addition to that she works for dispatching caregivers, consulting for travelers, caregiving technical assistance and training, and conducting collaborative projects among agriculture, welfare, and sightseeing.
