Preview of my trip to Fukushima

Today I travelled to 3 children's homes in Fukushima with Japan America Society. We visited these homes to discuss grants for various projects such as a cement wall to prevent rain from washing radioactive sediments down a hill and into a playground. Among these homes I also was able to visit Fukushima Aiikuen and got to enjoy dinner with the delegation of students who took part in the 10 day exchange program that I took part in during the summer!

This is Yoshi Endo, the chaperone of the delegation. He is an amazingly kind-hearted man who despite being a father of 4, still dedicates his life to being a father figure for the children of Fukushima Aiikuen. He was the absolute perfect chaperone for the delegation.
