As the sun sets in Seattle on March 10, 2012 and the sun rises in Japan on 
the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami, March 11, 2012, we gather 
in support for the people of Tohoku, Japan.

5 - 5:30PM      
Gather around Bonfire at Golden Gardens Park Beach

5:30 – 6PM      
Water Blessing and Prelude to Silent Prayers
Seattle Kokon Taiko will lead the procession with Japanese Taiko drums & flute music as we gather along the shoreline for the Silent Prayers at Sunset.

SUNSET VIGIL - Silent Prayers for the people of Tohoku, Japan

Sunset Vigil Concludes

The ocean connects us; therefore, we bless the water and pay tribute to both the people lost and the survivors, with sacred music, silent prayers, and the formation of a "human chain" facing Japan. We send love and hope to the people of Japan.

This is not only a memorial, but also an opportunity to work together to rebuild Japan and move forward.

We will not be accepting donations on site at the sunset vigil. We will provide information on Japanese nonprofit organizations that are making a difference in rebuilding lives and communities in Tohoku and Japan, for people to contribute online to the organization of their choice.
