On March 11, 2011, catastrophic earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan’s northeastern region (Tohoku) and many other areas since, forever changing the lives of millions.  The long and challenging road to recovery continues.

To honor the memory of those who have perished and to celebrate the resilient spirit of those rebuilding their lives, the Love to Nippon Project will come together as a community to pray, to remember, and to learn from the tragic experiences to help our community in the future.

The Love to Nippon Project encourages members of communities to participate and share the importance of natural disaster preparation here in Los Angeles and Southern California.  www.lovetonippon.org
