Oranda-jima Foundation supports people and children in Yamada-Machi, Iwate Prefecture, one of the major Tsunami striken area.

In 1643, Dutch ship “Breskens” during her journey in the Pacific Ocean, the ship drifted to the Yamada Bay. The fishermen at Yamada Bay had compassion to show their hospitality to them.

Knowing the tragic situation with the Tsunami on March 11, 2011 Dutch companies in Japan and other Dutch related organization showed strong intention to support Yamada-Machi for it’s revive and reconstruction. After more than 360 years of the hospitality shown to the Dutch people on Breskens, we will return the gratitude to the people and children in Yamada-machi.
