Memorial Service for the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake
4:00 – 5:00PM Saturday 13 March 2021
2021 marks the 10th Anniversary of the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami that devastated Tohoku and the northern Kanto region of Japan. Each year Canberrans, friends of Japan, and members of the Japanese community gather at the Canberra Nara Peace Park to remember this sombre occasion and to show our on-going support for those who are still recovering from the aftereffects. We invite you to join us as we ring the Nara Park Peace Bell to signify our united hope for continued world peace.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING OSHABERIKAI

We will monitor the situation closely and continue to follow government advice. We will reevaluate decisions as needed and communicate to you when we are able to reinstate Oshaberikai gatherings.
We understand this is a stressful time for many people and thank you for your understanding.
This regular event is your opportunity to put your Japanese into practice and get to know new people over drinks and snacks! Everyone with an interest in Japan is welcome.
