Activity Report - Kataribe: Sharing Stories Project

On January 22, 2022, an earthquake victim talked about the lessons he learned through his earthquake experience. "Kataribe: Sharing Stories" Project.

Those who evacuated Fukushima Prefecture due to the Great East Japan Earthquake have been running a storytelling project since 2016, linking lessons they learned from their earthquake experiences to the future.

They have talked about disaster prevention at 45 elementary and junior high schools and 9 preschools and kindergartens in Tokyo, Saitama, and Kanagawa.

On this day, koto player Yoshiaki Okawa from Futaba Town in Fukushima Prefecture visited Tokyo's Inagi Minamiyama Elementary School.

He spoke to 35 parents of Minamiyama Elementary School students.

During the lecture, Okawa talked about everything from the level of shaking during the earthquake, the hardships of living in an evacuation shelter, and the doctor who kindly cared for him at the shelter up to the present day. He also played koto and answered questions.

Participants shared their feelings afterward, saying, "It made me think hard about 3.11," "I remembered how precious life is,"

"I realized that being positive opens up new doors," and "I want to discuss the idea of 'living' with my children as a family." This was a valuable opportunity to share lessons learned through the earthquake.
