The kid correspondents’ photos that were taken on 11th March have been arriving.
Now we are adding English text! I hope non-Japanese readers can also enjoy the posts!
This 11th March we faced the 4th year of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear
power plant accident. The 311 KPJ kid correspondents went on assignment working on the theme “What I would like to pass on to people”, “What I would like people to see.”
The photos will be introduced in the facebook page continually.

3/11 Kids' Photo Journal
This is the school ground of my elementary school. After the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant exploded I was evacuated for a while to Tokyo. When I returned to the school for the new term I was told not to go out into the school ground which I did not. I used to dash to the school ground when I heard a play bell. When I saw my other friends playing soccer or playing tag in the ground I wondered “why I could not go out to play”.
It was difficult to understand as I had just entered 3rd grade at that time.
