Twenty years have passed since the terrorist attacks on the United States on the 11th of this month.

The restaurant in Fukuoka City, which had opened in the World Trade Center Building in New York, which collapsed due to terrorism, is displaying the cash register found at that time in the store to give an opportunity to think about peace.

The cash register is on display at the Menchankotei Tenjin store in Chuo-ku, Fukuoka.

According to the company that runs the store, the cash register was actually used at a store in the World Trade Center building 20 years ago, and was found in debris about a month after the building collapsed, according to local police. I was contacted and brought it back to Fukuoka.

It miraculously retains its original shape without being crushed by a large amount of debris, and the remaining receipt is engraved with the date of the last business day, "September 10".



On the day of the case, six employees, including one Japanese, were working on the preparation for the opening of the store at 11:00 am, but no one was injured because they evacuated immediately after the outbreak.



In addition to displaying the cash register, this store also creates leaflets that look back on the past 20 years, such as the local turmoil immediately after the incident and the "war on terrorism," and distributes them to customers.



Customers sometimes say, "It's been 20 years since then," said Yujiro Yonehama, president of the company that runs the store. I want you to see what was there and feel close to it, and use it as an opportunity to think about peace again. "
