Along with the Tokyo Olympics, an event is being held in Tokyo to inform the situation of recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake while taking measures against the infection of the new coronavirus.
This event, named "Tohoku House," has been held since the 22nd by an executive committee made up of economic organizations in Tohoku.
At the event space in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, there is a panel that introduces the progress of reconstruction after the Great East Japan Earthquake and a message of gratitude for the support provided by the people of Tohoku.
A woman in her 40s who visited from Tokyo said, "I realized the magnitude of the damage again. I think it is important to remember the earthquake."
On the other hand, since an emergency declaration has been issued in Tokyo, the number of people who can enter at one time is limited to 250 people, which is a quarter of the capacity, and the staying time is limited to 2 hours.
Shin Ono, general manager of the executive committee, said, "Since the event will be held in Tokyo at the" Reconstruction Olympics ", it will attract attention from both inside and outside Japan, so we are taking measures against infection. I want to convey the way I'm going. "
"Tohoku House" is open until 7th next month at Akiba Square in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.
