At the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake, a tremendous amount of support was provided to the Tohoku region from all over the world. A portion came from the government of Nepal. Though the country is known as one of the least developed in Asia, the Nepalese government provided 5,000 blankets, and Nepali people living in Japan distributed food. In April 2015, Nepal was struck by a massive earthquake. Residents of the Tohoku region, eager to repay the generosity shown by Nepal, were quick to respond. The Japanese owner of a Nepalese restaurant in Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture, assisted by local residents, raised money and sent supplies to stricken areas. In Sendai, children who experienced the 3.11 earthquake have painted pictures of the sun to provide moral support to Nepali children. This episode reports on ongoing activities in the Tohoku region that provide support to Nepal.
