ONE YEAR LATER
Commemorating the One-Year Anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami

On March 11, 2011, Japan's Tohoku coastal region was devastated by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami. The months after these disasters brought to the forefront incredible stories of resilience and generosity as Japan quickly began recovery efforts. In March of 2012, Japan Society presents a series of programs and events around the one-year anniversary of the disasters, commemorating the victims and examining the progress of Japan's recovery and prospects for the future.

Japan Earthquake Relief Fund

On March 12, 2011, Japan Society created the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, a disaster relief fund to aid survivors of the Great East Japan Earthquake.

As of January 2012, Japan Society has raised close to $12.5 million from almost 23,000 donors from all 50 states and around the world.
