On March 11, 2011, Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami hit our beautiful hometown. Unfortunately, it destroyed many towns in the coastal area in my home, Tohoku, and claimed almost 16,000 lives. Our lives were changed forever on that fateful day.
We appreciate all the kindness and love sent from all over the world during that time. Without the support, we would not have been able to recover this much from the devastating the loss of families, friends, and homes.
Although it is not fully recovered, most of us are able to resume normal life now. Therefore I’d like to do something positive for Tohoku – something cheerful and hopeful as 2021 marks the 10th year of memorial for this tragic event.
Then, I came up with this idea to connect artists and the local food industry to work together on a fun and exciting project to build up their relationship.
As a result of these events, I believe we can come together as a better community.
