Hirono town, Fukushima Prefecture,Japan  was hit by a complex disaster due to the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear power plant accident caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11, 2011, and was forced to evacuate the entire town.
 While many townspeople continued their evacuation lives, I became the mayor of Hirono town in December 2013 and vowed my duty to return the residents of Hirono Town safely. Under the circumstances where no one knows how the residents can return to the affected area, the living environment is improved by decontamination, the restoration of infrastructure, the development of commercial facilities, etc. We worked hard to get back to the town. Fukushima reconstruction is still on the way, but we have received a lot of kindness from whole of world, and the return rate has just reached 90%.
I think that reconstruction is about making the future of hope in the disaster-stricken area by working hard toward the wishes of the people and doing their own heart best.
In order to create a new town in a new era, we need to show to young people living in this town that they can connect to the world even in a small town like Hirono town ,  and to share the wisdom that the town and I have gained through the process of reconstruction will be a “pay it back” (“On-Gaeshi”in Japanese ) to  the world who supported us, We believe this is also opportunity to "pay it forward" (“On-Okuri”in Japanese) to anyone who needs help yet to meet.  At the same time, we believe that learning about excellent initiatives from all over the world will be an opportunity to make  reconstruction and revitalization of this region forward..
Please continue your support for the reconstruction of Fukushima.

The future from beyond the stormy water.   
I would like to share the following messages learned through Fukushima Reconstruction with Champion Mayors.  to ask everyone's thoughts on what is necessary to create a sustainable symbiotic society from the area affected by the nuclear disaster.

 While many townspeople continued their evacuation lives, I became the mayor of Hirono town in December 2013 and vowed my duty to return the residents of Hirono Town safely. Under the circumstances where no one knows how the residents can return to the affected area, the living environment is improved by
decontamination, the restoration of infrastructure, the development of commercial facilities, etc. We worked hard to get back to the town. Fukushima reconstruction is still on the way, but we have received a lot of kindness from whole of world, and the return rate has just reached 90%.
