On June 29, as the first MIRAI-TSUBAKI activity of Morioka Tohoku Branch office, we gave beauty services to the people in the coastal city, Miyako. On this day, we asked for assistance of volunteers through the Social Welfare Council, and we all called to and invited local residents living in temporary housing. The first visitor was the man who had worked as a fisherman. Once we started massaging his big hands, he confided his story that the tsunami occurred in the Great East Japan Earthquake swept away everything including his family. We did not stop the tears while listening to the story.
