Great East Japan Earthquake -10 years after – Nederland bedankt 

Thursday March 11, 2021 from 12.00 – 13.00 (CET) / 20.00 – 21.00 (JST) 


March 11, 2021 marks 10 years of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. 

The magnitude 9.0 earthquake was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan and the world’s fourth largest earthquake (approx. 19,000 death, 2,500 missing, 121,996 housing damage). The 40m Tsunami in the aftermath of earthquake caused the nuclear powerplant accident in Fukushima.  

On this occasion, JCC would like to express our sincere condolences to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami, and offer our heartfelt sympathy to all who were affected in the disaster area.

At the same time, we want to express our gratitude to the tremendous support from Dutch people and society to the affected area after the earthquake and tsunami. 

It will be also a good opportunity for both Dutch and Japanese to know about the reconstruction progress in last 10 years and the current situation through video message from affected cities. 

We hope that this occasion would further develop the strong friendship, cultural and business ties between Japan and the Netherlands since 1600, and can continue our trust, respect and friendship for years to come.
