Held in London during the 2012 Olympic Games, the event was a way to express appreciation for the worldwide support after the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster, and provide status updates about Japan’s recovery efforts. During the event, the film “ARIGATO (Thanks)” was aired, a photo exhibition was held, in addition to traditional Japanese cultural performances such as dance and drum (taiko). Also, at Hidetoshi Nakata’s suggestion, a “Japanese Sake Bar” offered Japanese Sake served by famous sake brewing masters.
