The Japan Embassy organised Akari Lantern Project at London Thames Festival 10th and 11th March 2011 to raise money for Japan’s recovery from the earthquake and tsunami disaster.
There were origami, badge and Lantern making workshops. Many people has joined the night parade with their hand made lanterns in their hands and there also Joji Hirota’s live performance of taiko drums. They collected £2304.53 from this event.
All the donations have been sent to the Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund set up by the Japan Society – UK.

This animation shows some of the attendees as cheerleaders for all those affected.
We hope our smiles will reach Japan!


Finally finally I got a confirmation from the Japan Embassy with the total donation figure on the Akari Lantern Festival!!!

I’m going to put that information on the clip and upload it on YouTube very very soon!!!!

ANIMATSUDA joined Japan Society’s Akari Lantern Project at Thames Festival on 10th and 11th September 2011. This event took place exactly 6 months after the March earthquake and tsunami hit Japan. We don’t see as much news on the web about the area affected as before, but people still have been putting a lot of effort into the recovery and reconstruction.

The Japan Society has come up with the project to carry hand made lanterns with all the good wishes to Japan at the Thames Festival Night Carnival. The parade was accompanied with Joji Hirota’s taiko drummers and many people joined to walk together in the night of London.

ANIMATSUDA filmed the daytime session with Japan Society where there were origami and calligraphy workshops, badge and lantern making stalls.

Thank you very much for all the people who participated in our ouendan animation! We hope that your smile and heart will reach the people who have been affected by the disaster.
