Footprints and Footsteps

As we mark the 10th anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami it is a time to reflect and thanks to GlobalGiving, a time to continue our mission with the help of matching donations.

Footprints and Footsteps 3.11 and the Future of Tohoku - March 5-11

This is an online event to look back at the events of March 11, 2011, and efforts to recover and rebuild in the 10 years since. Featuring a number of documentaries focusing on those affected by the disasters arising out of the events of that day, both Japanese and non-Japanese, especially JET Program participants and alumni, we will look back from this ten-year mark to remember what happened, and look at today and tomorrow to get a sense of what has been accomplished and what the future holds.

We are also collecting messages and memories on our Facebook page. We will keep you updated with the latest information about the film screening event.

Giving Tuesday Donation Match and Taylor Reading Corner Visits

ISU Faculty and Staff Visit to Higashihama ES
ISU Faculty and Staff Visit to Higashihama ES

Higashihama ES Cooking Workshop with TAMF Advisor and Chef

Chiba-san, who is an advisor to TAMF and librarian at Ishinomaki Senshu University, visited Higashihama Elementary School on November 5th, 2020.

They had a cooking workshop with oysters from the sea near the school.

They used recipes from books in their Taylor Bunko. One is Oyster burger and the one is grilled oysters in the shells. They invited a chef in French cuisine, Mr. Fumihiko Sasaki, from Zao town which is in the northeastern part of Miyagi, to have this cooking lesson. Students removed oysters from the shells yesterday.

Please see the photos below of how well the students cooked and enjoyed the time.

They used cooking books recommended by Chiba-san to purchase. She also in a previous visit gave brief English lessons with the cook books. Suzuki-san, the vice principal, tries to expand the students' possibilities in the future by using oysters such as in food processing, food industry, restaurants business and so on in the area where most residents are involved in oyster farming. This encourages the long term recovery of this area that was devastated by the tsunami causing many residents to leave the area because of loss of their jobs and housing.

The film "Live Your Dream: The Taylor Anderson Story" is integrated in Higashihana ES education through Taylor Bunko.

Higashihama ES Taylor Bunko Reading Exchange

Chiba-san and Professor Terui of Ishinomaki visited Higashihama elementary school in September to talk about the new oyster cookbooks the school had purchased at Chiba-san’s direction.

It was their fourth time to have an exchange program through Taylor reading corner.

Children sat on the Taylor Bunko bookshelves during the presentation by Professor Terui.
