Family Day "Together we will Plant the Seeds for the Future"

Jornada familiar:

One year after the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster that stroke Japan on March the 11th 2011, the situation in the affected areas has dramatically improved. Yet normality still requires a longer effort to settle in the heart of the people, especially the children of Tohoku. Casa Asia and ESADE Aid for Japan bring together Spanish children and Japanese children resident in Barcelona, together with their families, in a day of commemoration and solidarity which will help to better understand Japanese culture as well as create closer ties between the youngest generations of both countries.

a) Mythological stories of earthquakes and volcanos in Japan and the world.
