How's your summer time?
I wrote about the music summer festival held in Japan the last time.
Today, I talk about the summer festival in Tohoku region.

On May 11, 2011, it was happened.
The big earthquake brought about the big tsunami,
and so many people living in this area fell in a victim to a calamity.
It is about a year and half since the disaster, people staying there
are making a fantastic effort to reconstruct their own town.

Although Tohoku region is not reconstructed completely yet,
they can have the summer festivals in each areas in this summer!
This is very happy news for us. Of course, several problems remain yet.
But we can see a bright tomorrow, I'm sure it :)

This is a web site of the summer festival in Tohoku!

Tsunami attacked the east side mainly. Iwaki city in Fukushima prefecture
is one of the towns swallowed by the tidal wave. But this summer, they could
have a display of fireworks in Iwaki city!!

"Never give up, Iwaki, Fukushima. Fukushima's reconstruction will make
the regeneration in Japan. We'll warm your mind up with the light made by
our fireworks in Iwaki". This was the theme at this event.

Aomori and Akita prefecture also imparts energy and vitality
and sprit of other people!
