Steps toward Recovery and Restoration: Accelerating Restoration on the Back of Universal Support (June 2011)

We have continued to receive a number of kind offers of assistance both from in Japan and abroad. On the back of such support, we are determined to take steps forward together, in order to regain our hometown, “Sendai, the City of Trees” and to create a city full of hope—one that is more safe and secure than ever before.

Sendai Sparrow Dance

Sendai suzumeodor performance

Although the Annual “Sendai Aoba Matsuri Festival” was cancelled this year due to the Great East Japan Earthquake, the “Sendai Sparrow Dance Parade” was held instead in order to spread some cheer in Sendai.
After a moment of silence for the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake during the opening ceremony, which was held in the civic square of Kotodai Park, the parade moved into the shopping arcades in Ichibancho and Chuodori Avenue and the participants performed dances in crisp rhythm with lots of shouting and music. As many as 70 groups participated in the parade during the two-day event, filling the City of Sendai with energy and liveliness.
