ABOUT Tokyo Room Finder Short Essay Contest
Tokyo Room Finder Short Essay Contest (T-SEC) is an online project to gather heart-warming experiences following the earthquakes in Japan. We strongly believe that sharing those experiences will give people hope and revitalize Japan. After the huge catastrophe that hit Japan last March, we have heard depressing news about the earthquake destruction and tsunami in Tohoku and a great number of foreign people left Japan. However, it is also true that a significant number of heart-warming stories posted on twitter brought strength and encouragement to people. We welcome your short written experience following the earthquakes in Japan. In gratitude for your participation in this project, T-SEC, we will give a prize to the three most-read writers!
