Since I have lived in Tokyo/Japan for 8 years and experienced the East Japan Earthquake in 2011, it is quite common to see some TV programs or news come up every March related to earthquake. However, it is my first time to access real talks face to face.

You may not know that the distance between Tokyo and Tohoku is from 200 to 700 kilometers, which is not so close for those who are doing supportive activities. Therefore, as the topic written here: “Support from Tokyo for rebirth of Tohoku”, there must be some things people can do from Tokyo.

What can we do?

Mr. Daisuke Tsuda not only visited Tohoku area for many times, he also started several projects, including a project of selling second-hand clothes given by famous stars to general public to provide the profits to support the rebirth activities, and the other of developing Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to be a sightseeing theme park. He believes that the development of sightseeing theme park will bring people here and let the incident be kept in the memory of people.
