For all of you who have been affected by the Eastern Japan Great Earthquake, our thoughts and prayers are with you. We wish for the earliest recovery in the devastated areas.

After the earthquake, we received many caring messages from our friends overseas. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your thoughts. Fortunately, our office was not damaged badly, and we are now back to our normal work schedule.

But the critical situation continues around the nuclear power plants, and our hearts ache for people who live within their vicinity. The photo of the beautiful Fukushima is on our top page so that the thoughts of as many people as possible would be gathered there. It is the dawn at a camp ground in Fukushima, photographed in 2003. We pray that the smiles will return one day soon to these beautiful seaside towns and other earthquake affected areas.
