Sound of “Wa“ Concert to Support Eastern Japan in a Spirit of Harmony 2016 in Tokyo

On March 11 (Friday), 5 years after the Great East Japan Earthquake, Seiko Holdings Corporation organized the “Sound of 'Wa' Concert to Support Eastern Japan in a Spirit of Harmony 2016 in Tokyo” at Bunkyo Civic Hall.

Seiko has been holding concerts to support reconstruction in the disaster-stricken areas since immediately after the earthquake, and this edition of “Sound of 'Wa' Concert to Support Eastern Japan in a Spirit of Harmony” marked the 20th staging of this concert.

The “Wa” in the name of the concert refers to the ”circle” of support activities, a “circle” symbolizing the joined hands of those who suffered in the disaster and their supporters around the world, to the “circle” of dreams and aspirations for the future, to the “harmony” of everyone coming together to assist with reconstruction, and to the “Japanese essence” of a vibrant Japan.

This year, the “Wa” Message Cards carried the thoughts of residents in the disaster areas and the words of encouragement from supporters, and the 6,000 cards sent from schools, companies and disaster areas throughout the country were used to decorate the stage of the concert.

The concert saw the participation of guests like Norio Maeda and Windbreakers, Marlene, Junichi Inagaki, Midori Karashima, Machiko Watanabe, Circus, and EPO, and the stage was filled with the hopes of artists wishing a swift recovery.
