✿One Year Memorial

The Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco held a memorial reception on March 13th, one year after the March 11th 2011. The reception was held at the beautiful Golden Gate Club Presidio in San Francisco and over 600 hundred people attended.  

Consul General Hiroshi Inomata had speech as well as John Perez of the California State Assembly and figure skate gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi who actually went to Tohoku area to support victims of earthquake and tsunami.  
Her foundation called Project Aloha delegation to visit the affected areas.

These women performed Japanese Koto and violin beautifully.

Lots of delicious foods and drink were provided by Japanese restaurants.

It says all the Shinkansen line were completely restored 49 days of the earthquake. The Shinkansen has the best safety record in the world.  Zero fatal accidents in 47 years.

Relief - Recovery - Rebuild
