It was made one by one.



The height is about 2 meters, and students of Tokyo University of the Arts considered the design, and some of the materials are reused for temporary housing in the disaster area.



The feelings of gratitude for the support so far written by junior and senior high school students in the three prefectures and the message of support for the players are written there.



Ayaka Takahashi, who won the gold medal at the badminton women's doubles at the Rio de Janeiro Games and spent her junior high and high school days in Miyagi Prefecture, attended the unveiling ceremony held in Tokyo on the 13th. I hope the Olympics and Paralympics will be the light of hope for those who are suffering from the disaster areas and the Corona disaster. "



The reconstruction monument will be set up near the national stadium during the Games, and will be relocated to three prefectures in December with a message from the athletes who will participate in the Tokyo Games after the Games.
