Tour participants look satisfied with the content of the tour. Some impressions are as follows: “it was first time to find and attend the tour to Fukushima although I have attended voluntary tours to Iwate and Miyagi. I think I realise even a part of current situation of Fukushima.”, “we could talk with local people in detail and had chance to have heart-felt meals which were different from other tours”, and so on.
Second tour starting from February 1 is full now and we have to ask you to put your name on the waiting list.
We are looking forward to seeing you at next tours which are under planning.
