TOKYO, July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ARIGATO in LONDON, an event to show Japan's gratitude for the worldwide help, assistance and courage given after the Great East Japan Earthquake and also to show how Japan is recovering from the disaster, will be held for 15 days from July 28 to August 11, 2012, at London County Hall.
During the event, a video will be shown to express "arigato" (meaning "thank you" in Japanese) in 83 languages toward the 163 countries and regions that offered to help after the disaster. Also a photo exhibition showing Japan working toward reconstruction will be held in cooperation with the Recovery Assistance Media Team and photographer Shinichi Sato.
Furthermore, on the terrace stage of County Hall, there will be, from time to time, traditional Japanese cultural performances such as Japanese dance, shamisen (three-stringed lute) and taiko (drum).
Community festival games such as ring toss and yo-yo fishing, reminiscent of the festivity of Japan's fete days, will be demonstrated. Handicrafts from across Japan will be put on sale and a sake bar will be opened in an effort to communicate Japanese culture to the rest of the world.
