About HARU

We provide assistance toward the reconstruction of Tohoku district, devastated by the quake and the following Tsunami on March 11, 2011.Many volunteer students of Tohoku University have joined us in this noble cause. Also, HARU have received official recognition from Tohoku University so that we are able to promote volunteer activities to meet community needs. In the future, we are switching our work to the long-term reconstruction with broad range of cooperation.

Pre-event of "しあわせきいろ"(Happiness of YELLOW)

This is Kaisumi from HARU  public relation.
Last night, we got snow and winter has come to our town, finally.
About a month ago, on 20th of Nov, I participated in an event at Watari town. I'd like to blog about it.

    As I also belong to HARU's "Field Mustard" project, and we got invitation to this event from Wakabayashi-san from Miyagi University. A company named "My Farm" from Kyoto hosted this event. Happiness of YELLOW is another project to plant field mustard, just like HARUs. This pre-event is for sowing seeds.

    It was b.e.a.utiful day! Thanks for warm sun, my coat seemed disappointed.
I got this cute badge!
   Before sowing, people offered us one of Wataris popular dish はらこ飯 (Harako-meshi), which is a bowl dish cooked with salmon roe and salmon. Since Ive eaten Harako-meshi at Watari before 3.11, it warmed up not only body but also my heart.

    First, we removed small rubble from field. Field was mixed with sea sand, and it was like that of beach.

    Farmers sorrow is unimaginable, but next spring, the plants will grow here firmly and strongly and make carpet of flowers. I felt so excited.
    Then, we made a long line to sow.

    It was fun sowing seeds with many people: University students from Sendai, volunteers who came all the way from Osaka and the farmers. We all work and pray together for reconstruction.

    By the time we wrapped up, strong wind was blowing from sea.
Lastly, Id like to thank Wakabayashi-san so much for inviting us to this event!
