Children plant trees on Fukushima levee

October 6, 2013


Trees planted on new Fukushima levee



About 3,000 residents and volunteers planted 20,000 seedlings on a newly built levee off the coast of Minamisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture, on Sunday.

The event was organized by Minamisoma City and volunteer groups.

Mayor Katsunobu Sakurai said he hopes the trees will grow and protect people from tsunami.

Members of the all-girl pop group AKB48 also took part in the event.

The participants were divided into groups and planted the seedlings on mounds about 200 meters from the coast.

The levee contains rubble, wood and other debris from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The seedlings are expected to grow to a height of more than 10 meters in about 10 years.

A 12-year-old junior high school student said she planted the young trees and prayed that everyone will be saved from tsunami.
