The New Japan: A new future
MESSAGE from Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan:
Two years have passed since the earthquake of 3/11. Shortly after the disaster, i was in a small village called Watari. Nothing remained but debris.
I was stunned.
I was speechless.
During those challenging months, many people shed not only sweat but also tears for the victims. I can’t express enough how thankful I still am for all the help you gave us.
Today, I am pleased to make an announcement: The people who suffered tremendously have not lost hope. In Watari, the strawberry farmers have recovered, rising to new heights. I ate their product, those big and red strawberries. They were delicious. Indeed, they may even be tastier, as the fruit is now being grown under newly-installed precision temperature control, a cutting-edge technology.
This is the new Japan: The result of peoples’ resolve plus advanced knowledge. A country that faced up to a taxing and unimaginable challenge has been reborn. The nation once helped by your goodwill now stands at the cusp of a new future.
Please join us as we journey into this new future. The New Japan. (mnj.gov-online.go.jp/) - Courtesy of the Embassy of Japan in Brunei Darussalam
