Initiatives Supporting Recovery and Reconstruction at TMC Yurakucho (August 30, 2021)
Today, let us introduce our initiatives on recovery and reconstruction at TMC Yurakucho. During Tokyo's campaign to host the 2020 Games which began in 2011, the Tokyo 2020 Bid Committee advocated the power of sport to bring hope and dreams to the areas affected by the 2011 Great East Earthquake. The origins of the Tokyo 2020 Games are Olympic and Paralympic Games aimed at recovery and reconstruction. TMC Yurakucho is also supporting the efforts for reconstruction of the affected area through panel displays and distribution of media kits.
Panel display and distribution of media kits on reconstruction
We have panels on the damage caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake, the efforts of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government for reconstruction, and the current state of reconstruction in the affected areas. In addition, paper folder and flyers on support for the disaster recovery are distributed as a media kit.
Installation of wooden benches made in Fukushima Prefecture
In cooperation with Fukushima Prefecture, we have installed wooden benches made from timber sourced from Fukushima Prefecture. Elementary and junior high school students in Fukushima Prefecture were involved in the construction of these benches. A QR code attached to the bench allows you to see how the bench was made.
