3.11 One Year Later, Commemorating Japan's Tsunami and Earthquake at Japan Society

Seems like it happened not long ago yet we are about to mark the one year anniversary of the tsunami and earthquake that hit Japan.

On Sunday, March 11, the Japan Society in New York has set a full day of activities commemorating the tragic events and honoring the memories of those who lost their lives under the One Year Later, A Day of Reflection banner.

There are family programs including Children Artwork from Tohoku, an exhibition titled Memory: Things we should not forget and discussions like Tohoku Post 3.11: What's happening now?


Films are part of the mix with Can you see our lights, Pray for Japan and The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom (picture above).

Time for reflection for Tokyo Thursdays # 226

Previously:  Drive By Art, Poetic Pastimes: Japan and the Art of Leisure, Newark Museum, Until May 6
