Donation from a charity concert held in France

In June 2011, a charity concert for Rikuzentakata was held in Orsay, France, and SAVE TAKATA has received a donation of the money that was raised.

The concert was organized around a proposal by a Japanese lady, who studies at a music school in France. SAVE TAKATA was chosen as the recipient of the donation due to the organizers’ intention “to donate to a local and community-based organization”.

To see the detailed report of the concert, read this blog article:

Sakura Line 311 Begins

With the help of multiple support organizations, a project was begun that seeks to “plant sakura trees in areas affected by the disaster”.

It was not until after the March 11th tsunami that it was discovered that tsunamis of similar size had struck the area in the past.
Had it only been known that a tsunami large enough to overcome the breakwater could potentially happen, more lives could have been saved… From that idea this project was born.

This project seeks to plant sakura trees that demarcate the reach of the tsunami, to show future generations the extent of the damage.
Starting with the development of the home page, SAVE TAKATA seeks to support the project by publishing information about it.

The Sakura Line 311 Home Page will be created in conjunction with the company “days and days”, which is run by people from Rikuzentakata.

By supporting the development and entrepreneurship of local companies like “days and days”, SAVE TAKATA hopes to rejuvenate Rikuzentakata’s economy.

Re:Earth Open Air

On October 29th the Re:Earth Open Air event was held in Oushu city, Iwate prefecture. The event was planned and organised by SAVE TAKATA.

Official Re:Earth Open Air home-page (in Japanese):

Young people gathered on Taneyama plateau, at a place called Constellation Forest. This is a camp-site from where the stars can be seen very clearly. DJs played music throughout the night.

This event, on the southern coast of Iwate, was planned with the following objectives in mind:
1) create a place where young people can gather.
2) local people create a new festival that young people will look forward to.
3) to develop a kind of celebration that will appeal to everyone around the world.
4) increase awareness of Iwate through local cuisine.

A large number of local young people participated as volunteer staff. The skies were clear and looking up, one could look upon a beautiful sea of stars.

The hope is that this event will be held annually from now on.
