We visited the earthquake stricken area with Astronaut Koichi Wakata.
On August 16th and 17th of 2014, we visited the stricken area with JAXA Astronaut Koichi Wakata.
At the halls of Ofunato city in Iwate prefecture and Yamamoto-cho and Watari-cho in Miyagi prefecture, we showed our original animation movie and the video messages from the children of Al Falah special primary school of Indonesia.
Astronaut Wakata gave a mini lecture explaining his missions on the Space Station. His speech was very easy-to-understand for the children. He answered various questions for the children very thoughtfully, and the participated children were motivated by such a valuable experience.
After the lecture, our picture book “You are the only one, but never a lonely one” were handed out to the children.After the program, we filmed messages of the Japanese children for the Indonesian children. Many children participated in film shooting positively.
