Trip to Inami

Our Co-Founder, Karim Thalji, supported by the Princeton Fred Fox Alumni Grant, traveled to Japan for 17 days in January, dedicating a week to exploring Inami, Toyama Prefecture. This visit enabled us to forge meaningful connections with the local community and establish solid relationships. With the assistance local Inamian, Katsuhiko Nakajima-san, who is now an active team member, we had the unique opportunity to meet woodcarvers in their homes and workshops, and also engage with other residents of Inami.
