Welcome to Project Fumbaro Eastern Japan
"Project Fumbaro Eastern Japan (PFEJ)" is a volunteer network based on a new support model formed by Takeo Saijo, Ph.D, to accommodate the unprecedented disaster right after March 11th (2011) massive earthquake hit Japan.
"Fumbaro" means 'hang in there', especially used by the local people in Eastern Japan.

Being frustrated by the complicated decision-making process of the governments which delayed necessary supports to the devastated area, PFEJ uses its website and twitter to spread/gather information, and it made possible to pinpoint needs and deliver support easily and quickly.

I took this photo in November, 2011 at Kesennuma.
This huge ship was drifted on the land by tsunami. It was surrounded by innumerable debris, but now all cleared up.
This ship has still remained there, as if it reminds people of the Tsunami.
Telegraph poles along the road seem to be built after Tsunami.

All photos were taken on Nov 19-20, 2011
