Come and meet SWTJ at Kyoto’s famous international autumn festival!
OPEN DAY at Kyoto International Community House 


1 1/2 years after the disaster in northeastern Japan, Solidarity with Tohoku, Japan (SWTJ) will be present at

OPEN DAY at Kyoto International Community House near Subway Keage Station in Kyoto, an autumn festival much anticipated by the local and international community every year!
PLACE: Kyoto International Community House, 2-1 Torii-cho, Awataguchi, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto Tel. 075 752-3010 (5 min. on foot from Keage Tozai Subway Station).

SWTJ will participate for the second time in the category of Disaster Victim Support. We can be found in the Kids’ Space on the third floor in rooms 3 and 4. Now that people are starting to forget about Tohoku, support is needed more than ever! There will be photos of our continuing support activities in the Tohoku disaster areas, including those of the SWTJ Kids’ Summer Camp in Kesennuma! Come by for a chat, we’ll be very happy to see you! SWTJ goods will be on sale, and our very popular cotton candy (watagashi) machine (used by hundreds of Tohoku kids who have enjoyed making cotton candy during our activities) will accompany us to the site! Try your own!
At the festival, don’t miss the wonderful World Music, a live and talk show by an Okinawan musician, The World Culture Workshop, the Flea Market- and most of all the yummy food at the international food stalls! People line up way before noon, so coming early is recommended!

Below some pictures of the SWTJ 2012 SUMMER SCHOOL for Tohoku kids in Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture- come and see more pictures in our display on November 3!

'We won't forget!'
