Continuing host town relations through letters (Tono, Iwate)
As part of a project by Japan Post to send letters between host towns, all students at the Tono-kita Elementary School wrote letters expressing their wishes that the coronavirus pandemic will resolve as soon as possible and that in-person international exchange events and cultural interactions will resume.
The letters depicted various messages of support, some proudly writing an introduction of their hometown, and also a few illustrations, which would be then delivered to various agencies in Brazil such as the Brazilian Paralympic Committee, the Brazilian Sports Confederation for the Visually Impaired, and the Iwate Kenjinkai of Brazil.
