SAKURAISM -with Fukushima-​


On March 11th 2011, the Great East Japan earthquake occurred and the tragic accident of Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Power Plant happened in Japan. After the disaster, Hasumi visited Fukushima. He wanted to do something for the reconstruction and he wanted to see cherry blossoms. Because there were a lot of beautiful cherry blossoms in Fukushima. When he got to see the old cherry tree with the age of more than 1,000 years, Hasumi was really surprised. So many people from far away came to see the cherry blossoms. The place was only 50 kilometers apart from the destroyed nuclear power plant. People in Fukushima have adored the cherry blossom and might have taken a good care for the tree. In return for the people in Fukushima, the cherry tree might attract people in other regions who want to help Fukushima. It bloomed brilliantly for the local people in Fukushima this year again. Hasumi wants to watch over the cherry blossom until when Fukushima completely recover from the devastating earthquake.. .
