2 The 5th anniversary of the Tohoku Earthquake


The fifth anniversary of the Tohoku (East Japan) Earthquake was marked on Friday 11 March 2016 at Wellington Church, Glasgow Scotland.

It was organised jointly by Japanese Matsuri for Glasgow (a recognised Scottish charity), Wellington Church and Japan Desk Scotland, as a part of Japan Matters.

Japan Desk Scotland’s fourth documentary on Fukushima, ‘Fukushima: 2011-2015‘, was shown and a hymn, ‘Tsunami’, written by Rev David Sinclair, Wellington Church, was sung.  Rev Sinclair offered a prayer. £144 was raised at the event, which will be sent to Fudai and Noda Village Offices, Iwate Prefecture, both affected by the tsunami, by Japanese Matsuri for Glasgow.
