Tohoku Returns the Favor to Nepal

Tohoku Returns the Favor to Nepal Rerun

At the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake, a tremendous amount of support was provided to the Tohoku region from all over the world. A portion came from the government of Nepal. Though the country is known as one of the least developed in Asia, the Nepalese government provided 5,000 blankets, and Nepali people living in Japan distributed food. In April 2015, Nepal was struck by a massive earthquake. Residents of the Tohoku region, eager to repay the generosity shown by Nepal, were quick to respond. The Japanese owner of a Nepalese restaurant in Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture, assisted by local residents, raised money and sent supplies to stricken areas. In Sendai, children who experienced the 3.11 earthquake have painted pictures of the sun to provide moral support to Nepali children. This episode reports on ongoing activities in the Tohoku region that provide support to Nepal.

Young Fukushima Farmers Make Agriculture Cool

Young Fukushima Farmers Make Agriculture Cool

Farming in Fukushima was hit hard by the 3.11 nuclear accident. There is, however, a young farmer (and former model) who has been steadily increasing his sales. Long lines of women form at the “Pizza Kitchen Car” launched by his apple and peach farm, ‘Oononouen.’ The farm’s fruit as well as local vegetables are used as pizza toppings, highlighting delicious Fukushima produce. Far from being an oddity, Oononouen farm is part of a larger trend. In 2015, 40 young farmers from all over Fukushima joined forces to establish the “Cool Agri” organization, which acts as a prefecture-wide framework for agricultural production and promotion. This program shows viewers how the organization’s activities provide a model for energizing farming, not only in Fukushima, but across the nation.

The Magical Power of Cinema

Movies have provided great support to people in the Tohoku region. From two months after the disaster, the “Cinema Yell Tohoku” project has held more than 500 free-of-charge screenings of popular movies in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures. With the help of people in the movie industry, screenings have been held at elementary schools and temporary housing complexes. People are once again enjoying watching movies together with others, and movies are starting to become a new focus for community-building. The program investigates the spirit of people connected by movies and the regeneration of communities.
