Hidding at Hatena

Hello, thank you for reading!

Welcoming Frog

When buying souvenirs at a temporary shopping center I saw this frog. The owner of the frog had bought it to welcome guests and to protect his store. After the tsunami he found back the frog under a layer of rubble in one piece. It gave him inspiration to stay in his hometown and start up his store again.



I hope many people will start to visit this beautifull part of Japan again.
