Three years have passed since Japan was devastated by a magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami that struck the Tohoku and northern Kanto regions. Its effects have dealt a massive psychological blow to Japan, as well imposing an enormous physical and human cost.
Each year concerned Canberrans, friends of Japan and members of the Japanese community gather in the Canberra-Nara Peace Park to remember the victims and to show their support for those who are recovering from the disaster. This year’s service will be held on 15 March.
Lighting a candle at the service will be an opportunity to send our prayers and thoughts to the victims and the displaced, and at this gathering, we will renew our pledge to support the survivors into the future.
