Photo Walk / PR Event

This year, an event was organized to raise awareness of the APCC within the Fukuoka community.  Each country’s delegation set up a booth at a different location around the Tenjin area.  Fukuoka citizens purchased a participation pack, which entitled them to a special limited edited APCC T-shirt designed by Mr. Kotaku Yoshinaga and a photograph passport, which they would fill with photos taken of them with each delegation’s JAs at their decorated booths.

The event was a huge success and it was great to see a sea of yellow T-shirts throughout the streets of Fukuoka.

Each delegation’s Peace Ambassador brought products to sell at an International Booth and all money raised went to support the people affected by the 2011 Northern Japan Earthquake.  A total of 122,585 yen (approx. $1,500) was raised.  Thank you to everybody to his/her hard work and dedication on the day.
