On March 11, 2011, an unprecedented earthquake and tsunami hit the eastern part of Japan. Many lives were lost and much property was destroyed, followed by a major accident at the nuclear power plant. The United States and various parts of the world have sent their support to Japan, and reconstruction efforts are now strenuously underway.
What is going on in Japan after the earthquake--Governor Kuroiwa will talk about the country's present situation, and how Japan is coping in the aftermath. Japanese Ambassador to the U.S. Ichiro Fujisaki and Governor Yuji Kuroiwa, who runs the local administration of Kanagawa Prefecture, will transmit their messages about Japan's future direction toward reconstruction to the people of the U.S. through speeches and Q&A sessions.
