Japan earthquake Commemoration

A group of Japanese students in Taiwan is to commemorate the third anniversary of the 2011 disaster.

The event, which will take place in New Taipei City’s Tamsui District (淡水), is to express Japan’s gratitude to Taiwan for its post-disaster assistance and highlight the reconstruction that has been going on in the affected areas, organizers said.

Participants will also have the opportunity to fold paper cranes as a symbol of a blessing to the Japanese victims, the organizers said, adding that the paper cranes will be sent to residents in the affected areas.
