1.17

Today marks the 17th anniversary of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake.

The catastrophic earthquake occurred at 5:46 a.m. on Tuesday, January 17, 1995.

We honor the memory of the people killed by the earthquake.

Also, we pray for the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake that hit the Tohoku region 10 months ago and extend our deepest condolences to their families. We wish for steady progress toward reconstruction from the disaster.
