    Charity Launch in aid of Light up Nippon w. Japanese Soc

    • 08 Feb 2019

    Event Description

    We will be hosting an origami workshop on 8th February 13:00-15:00 in the Quad Room. We encourage all attendees to make a small contribution, while also engaging in conversation regarding natural disasters in Japan. Refreshments will be provided! 🎇WHAT IS LIGHT UP NIPPON? 🎇 Light Up Nippon was founded the year of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake & tsunami, and sought to revitalise the disaster-stricken regions through firework displays at obon festivals, a Japanese holiday that commemorates the deceased. Eight years since, Light Up Nippon now oversees the launch of 20,000 fireworks in 26 cities across the country, in festivals that are attended by over 50,000 people nationwide.
