Tohoku Railway, Teotsuna-go : let’s hold hands together

We Shall Hold Hands: Miffy, Elmo, Domo-kun and others come together for the kids of Japan.

As you all know It’s been over a year since a massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami raddled Japan, wiping entire villages off the map. Hundreds are still missing. Higashi Nihon Daishinsai.

I was so impressed by this today and couldn’t wait to share with you all. All the famous cartoon // anime // kawaii characters from all over the world are pitching in to help making Japanese Kids happy again, and I am in love with this idea.

Teotsunago is dedicated to the children of Japan, seeking to comfort them at this time of crisis. And the idea is so simple. Kids’ favorite characters, holding hands.

From 1st April to the 30th September, “Teotsuna-go”, wrapped by anarray of the characters, is running at Sanriku Railway along the coast oflwate. We hope everyone comes to ride “Teotsuna-go”, see this beautiful-region and laugh a lot. We’ll be very happy if those who live in the regions other than Tohoku came here and experience and be a part of this activity to support children in Tohoku area.
