In recognition of the two-year anniversary of the Great Eastern earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster in the Tohoku region of Japan, live webcast conference calls with people involved in the relief effort in Japan will take place at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj) in San Jose's Japantown on Saturday, March 9, 2013, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


Tohoku Insights, 2013: Live Conversations with Japan, produced by Design2Market, will bring together activists in the Tohoku rebuilding and relief effort in Japan with the local San Jose community in an online conference call that will be streamed live over the Internet. Due to the extent of the damage from the earthquake, tsunami , and nuclear disaster, the government is estimating it will take more than a decade to rebuild the Tohoku region. 


Online calls from Tohoku will include insights and updates from Takashi Yamamoto, president of Peace Boat Disaster Relief Volunteer Center; Miho Kazama of Think the Earth; Hatsuno Sano of Carnation Club; Maco Nishida, volunteer; and a special guest.


Following the calls, a panel discussion will be held to discuss how the local community can get involved in the relief efforts. Panelists include Hiroshi Inomata, Consul General of Japan; Ed Shikada, Assistant City Manager, City of San Jose; and community activists Steve Yamaguma and Taku Namikawa.


This event will be streamed live over the internet at: http://www.coreography.com/s/sj starting at 6:15 p.m.

Cost:  Free.
