Singer Masahiko Kondo (47) and many other talents from Johnny's Jimusho will take part in a donation collection event at Tokyo Dome from 10am today, in support of victims from the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
A part of Johnny's Jimusho's relief project "Marching J" and led by Kondou, the event will call for donations until 9pm (with entry to the grounds closing at 5pm.)
Last year from April 1st to April 4th, a similar though larger collection event was held in front of the first gymnasium building at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo. The project has also collected donations in many other ways, but this is said to be its last event. All funds raised are planned to be donated to services supporting affected children.

Forgive me, Arama. Today has me in tears. I'll never forget March 11, no matter how normal life in Tokyo returns to being.
