March 11, 2016 - The last photo journal from Fukushima branch

This is the last report from Natsuki Tanji (12 years old) of Fukushima branch.

He started this activity when he went to elementary school and now he is going to junior high school. He is busy with his study and after school activities so he has decided to leave KPJ.

He always sent his reports of his sincere feeling about his family.

This last report is also full of his warm feeling.

This is a cafe gallery “Fu to Boku (wind and tree)” that my grandparents are running.

They dug a well two years after the The Earthquake Disaster.

They struggled not to have water at the time of The Earthquake Disaster.

This is a curry dish they are serving in “Fu to Boku”.

At one stage it was deleted from cafe’s menu but it is back again since February.

This curry was cooked by my grandfather.

I hope the menu will expand to what it used to be.

This is a photo of my grandparents who are running Cafe “Fu to Boku.“

They said that they suffered a lot due to the Earthquake Disaster but it was

also the opportunity to think more often about family.

It also made them to decide to live as themselves.

One of things they are doing is measuring the radioactivity.

I wish they have a long healthy life.
