There are so many people who can’t go back to their home because of radiation, even though, 2 years passed after the great east Japan earthquake.  So people who live in Iwaki city, Fukushima prefecture decided to hold this event to support those who can’t go back to home.

People who went there said that it was very good opportunity to meet local people and talk about their memories.

They hold this event every month.

2 years… it seems very long time, but the great east Japan earthquake is not history for them yet.
