東北大震災復興ボランティア(岩手県陸前高田市) Volunteer information for Japan earthquake disaster































(English follows)


被災地の方々に何か少しでもお手伝いがしたいと思い、岩手県陸前高田市でボランティア活動に参加してきました。

岩手の内陸側では"被災地へ行っても迷惑じゃない?"と言う声があったり、ネットやmixi, twitterでもボランティアの正しい情報がほとんどなかったりして戸惑ったけど、実際現場へ行って見るとボランティアセンターがしっかり機能していて、人手を多く必要としていました。

重機は全然足りないし、重機が入れない場所は沢山あるから、人の手助けはまだまだ必要で、これからも当分は毎日募集受付しているそうです。

私が行った陸前高田ボランティアセンターのHPは特にまだない様で、でもセンターの方からも是非広めて欲しいとお話しがあったので, ここに情報をまとめます。

If you like Chocolate, Early Feb is the best season for you!

On Feb 14, St. Valentines day, Japanese girls present Chocolate to boys.

My recommendation of Japanese chocolate for today is "ROYCE' Potato chips chocolate".
ROYCE' is famous sweets company in Hokkaido.
It is their on of hit products - Salty potato chips and bitter-taste chocolate mixes so well on your tongue...

Buy two, for your boyfriend and yourself!
