Remembering 3.11
Remembering 3.11 Together on Facebook
Join us tonight, March 10th at 7:00PM EST on Facebook for the 10th Year Commemoration of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The Consulate General of Japan in New York has partnered with a number of organizations and individuals to create an hour-long feature in remembrance of the lives lost and still missing in the wake of the triple disaster that affected Tohoku, the northeast region of Japan.
On this occasion, we are showing our deep appreciation to the United States for the support they have shown Tohoku. #UnshakableFriendship
Ten years on, Tohoku has undergone a remarkable transformation. After a decade of reconstruction, the region is prepared to welcome guests from around the world. Together, we can recognize the courageous efforts of Tohoku in rebuilding their communities and revitalizing the region.
