8 Year Anniversary Event for “Aid For Japan” (registered charity) Fundraising event
10 March 2019, London
Date: 10th March (Sunday) 17:00-18:00
Place: Islington Yoga school, 357 City Rd EC1V 1LR near Angel station
There will be a presentation of a video interview with Yukio Saito.
Saito Sensei is headmaster of Ishinomaki Nishi High School. Ishinomaki town was severely damaged by the tsunami in the disaster. Saito Sensei has written about the experiences of those at the school during and after the disaster. As the school buildings were on higher ground, many local people took shelter there and the school gymnasium became a mortuary that eventually held more than 700 bodies. The title of his book Ikasarete Ikiru (lit. Allowed to live so Live) describes the mission of those who survived - both children and adults. Saito Sensei will be visiting London this summer.
Cost: £10 include one drink ( wine, beer, soft drink, tea, coffee) and a Dorayaki
After this event we will have dinner at a Thai restaurant nearby.
“Thai Square” Islington, 347 Upper St N1 0PD
