Thank you for your support - Five years since the Earthquake and Tsunami

It has been five years since the earthquake and tsunami hit Eastern Japan on March 11, 2011. Thousands of victims have moved to temporary dwellings provided by the local governments. Since their evacuation to shelters, they have shown the spirit of helping one another and encouraged other people. We will never forget their spirit, and we will never forget the support from all over the world.
