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!
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

Today, 8th March, we went to Yuriage. As the same as last year we went to the vacant lot that was uncle and aunt's house. This year we also drew Pooh and Peko-chan, wrote a message on the paper to display and for catching attention we decided to display balloons.
I prayed there and put a message in my mind “Yuriage hasn’t changed yet.” When we left I said “I will be back.” I was glad the balloons were easy to notice from distance.
But I have a lot of things that I would like to tell to the world. I would like to tell one of these things that Recovery of Yuriage has not been enough.
