Report from Jordan

When it comes to the Middle East, you might think that it is far away from Japan. But in reality, people in Jordan, where JEN office is located, are very friendly. I can feel that they have warm feelings for Japan in my daily life.

For example, at a restaurant or a supermarket, once they know I am Japanese, they talk to me concerning how is Japan doing after the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake in Tohoku, which was largely reported here in Jordan. They also encourage me saying that Japan will surely recover.

The other day, a charity concert was held for supporting Tohoku recovery at Amman, the capital of Jordan. Many people came to the site.

Many people in Jordan in the Middle East, wish Japan’s recovery even though it is far from Japan.
