An institution jointly launched by two universities in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, launched a website on Nov. 21 to provide in three languages information from students about tourist spots and the safety of the area after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami as well as the subsequent nuclear disaster.
The website, started by the Iwaki Community Reconstruction Center, an organization formed jointly by Iwaki Meisei University and Higashi Nippon International University, is intended to dispel concerns about the safety of the areas hit by the triple disasters by disseminating information, such as low air radiation levels there, at home and abroad.
The website publicizes everyday lives of students and information about tourist spots, such as Aquamarine Fukushima, an aquarium run by the Fukushima prefectural government, in Japanese, Chinese and Korean languages. It also includes video footage of the city’s current conditions.
The website operator plans to offer information in other languages, including English.
The website’s URL is http://global.revive-iwaki.net/
