LIGHT UP NIPPON: Malaysia Remembers

Event co-organized by   CosPlay-FUN  Malaysia
Thanks for the invitation! :-)
And I'm glad to have attended this mini gathering though it clashed with another event, Animax Carnival,
to remember and pray for those who were lost in last year's disaster.

Though, the weather wasn't being pleasant that day, nonetheless the fire work launching proceeded, as scheduled :-)

Information taken at : CosPlay-FUN  

"LIGHT UP NIPPON: Malaysia Remembers - is an event by the Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur, co-organized with Cosplay-FUN and Publika to commemorate the 1st anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake, which hit Tohoku area on 11th March last year.


The original "LIGHT UP NIPPON" project was carried out on 11th August, 5 months after the disaster, by setting off fireworks at disaster-struck areas. Now the LUN organizer and The Japan Foundation are trying to screen the documentary and launch a firework at 14:46(Japan time-13:46Malaysian time) on 11th March, the exact time the earthquake occurred, at as many cities in the world as possible. 



This event is not just to mourn the lost & remember the tragedy but also to support & encourage the people of Japan in their restoration efforts, just like the biggest fireworks event in Tokyo originally started as a memorial to the victims of a major famine back in 1733.



This event will be filmed and posted on the official website of "LIGHT UP NIPPON."
