Sendai Tanabata started off under a beautiful sunny sky.
All messages collected in UK is now displayed at Jozenji prayer’s square.
This street is specially allocated to messages brought to Sendai from other cities and countries abroad.
Our messages are displayed in this area with kind support by Mr Ikawa of Tohoku Japan British Society, Mr Yanatsu and Nogi of Sendai city government.
“Look! They are from London!”
Many people who came to this Tanabata festival read the messages.
A boy said, I can not understand English but I can tell they are really thinking of us.
A young father said reading these messages makes me cry, it is so touching…
There are so many comments I can not list fully but many of them were very much surprised by the fact that 1188 messages were collected and delivered to Sendai.
Your message surely delivered to Sendai, and to people in the area.
