Kizuna Project(Pictures from Children at affected areas)

The Kizuna project, supported by Consulate General of Japan at Chicago, is an exhibition of pictures drawn by children from the areas effected by the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan.

We would like to share the thanks and appreciation of these children and their families to all who helped and donated last year.

Students from six different elementary schools from the towns of Onagawa, Miyagi Prefecture; Matsushima-City in the Nobiru area, Miyagi Prefecture; and the village of Iitate, Fukushima Prefecture drew pictures. The themes are “Thank you, people from around the world”, “Myself in 10 years”, and “Things I want to do”. These pictures were displayed with encouraging photos and messages from around the world at Global Festival Japan in Tokyo – Hibiya park and at World Collaboration Festival in Nagoya.

Japan America Society of Minnesota would like to express “Thank you” to everyone who supported the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami relief efforts by displaying these pictures at Japanese Restaurants and Japanese item stores that are currently contributing to JASM.

We thank our corporate members for supporting this project. Please visit these Japanese Restaurants and Japanese item stores, and please enjoy the children’s art full of their hopes.  This exhibition will be held from March 19th until 31st at the venues below.
