Happy New Year, 2016.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for kind support and continued support.
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2016 is the year of Monkey.
It is said that it will be great fortune of good health if you wear something red in this monkey year.
However, there were a lot of natural disaster around the world last year.
We, General incorporated association PLAJA, hold the Memorial Service for Indian Ocean Tsunami Victims every year.
There was the 10th anniversary of memorial service two years ago.
It was considering it as an end of the memorial service but we determined that we would continue to hold the service as long as we can.
Because we should not forget the fear of disaster and the misery from disaster. We should not forget the sense of crisis.
From such a thought, we held the 11th anniversary of memorial service for Indian Ocean Tsunami Victims at 26th Dec 2015.
We would report that the memorial service was closed without incident.
Again, we appreciate from the bottom of heart for your kind support, to the All Japan Buddhist Association, Nichiren section, the sponsored media and individuals.
We carried out the 11th anniversary of memorial service for Indian Ocean Tsunami victims with your kind support.
PLAJA has been approved as general incorporated association in September 2015.
There is a problem regarding to climate, economy, immigration, terrorism and man-made disasters and natural disasters all over the world nowadays.
It is not only for the memorial service, we would like to be a bridge between Thailand and Japan or with the world to help people with great effort.
It will be our mission of the future.
We would like to ask you look forward to the activities of PLAJA in this year and we would very appreciate if we could have your advice and encouragement.
We hope you all the best in 2016.
President Hiromichi Kanke
General incoporated association PLAJA
