2014 3/11 Kids' Photo Journal Assignment from Iwate!

We are adding English text of The kid correspondents’ photos that were taken on 11th March this year. We 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.
And also http://kidsphotojournal.org/

The sports park had a lot of rubble three years ago. It was cleaned and became just empty land.

But it was decided to build a new sports park and baseball field here again.

It will take a time to open. But once we have the sports park again, we can have a competition here again and many people will visit to our town, Akamae.

It can be expected to be Akamae’s jump start. I am expecting the sports park will bring some spark or vibrancy to Akamae.
