At Misato Park in Okinawa City on March 23, Peaceful Candle Night was held to pray for the Great East Japan Earthquake restoration and peace.

Pupils and parents from city schools used 3,000 candles to light the park with a message.

This is the second time the organizers have held the event. The participants lined the candles up to create letters spelling “peace” in Kanji (Chinese character).
Participant Yui Yamshiro wrote, “Never give up hope” in her message. She said, “I would like people not to give up restoration of the affected areas.” Miari Yamashiro said, “The restoration from the earthquake is not over yet. I would like Japan to be at peace.”
