About the Fukushima Sunflower Project
The Fukushima Sunflower Project was started to connect Fukushima, the city greatly affected by the Great Earthquake on March 11, 2011, and the nuclear plant accidents that followed, and other parts of Japan. In this project, people grow sunflowers and send the seeds to Fukushima. We then plant them and create fields of sunflowers to symbolize the city's rebirth.
