Volunteer to Help Rebuild Tohoku

Since the great earthquake and tsunami of March 11th, 2011 in Northeastern Japan millions of people have volunteered in some way to help the victims of this horrific disaster. 

This website has been created to continue these efforts and to allow people to now volunteer to help Japan in a new way. Rebuilding Tohoku is a website that allows anyone to register as a member to provide information about various subjects related to the rebuilding efforts of Northeastern Japan. 

Rebuilding Tohoku focuses on a range of subjects including information about the Tohoku region, March 11th 2011, renewable energy, economics, politics, tourism and philanthropy.

We ask people interested in providing information on these subjects or helping with translating Japanese to English to register as members and support the effort. Thank you for your interest and look forward to your help. 

Tohoku Ganbaro!
