As part of the recovery efforts following the 3-11-11 Great East Japan/Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, the Japanese government created the Kizuna Program: an exchange between Japanese students from the affected area and other countries. One of Toronto's high schools participated in the exchange, welcoming Japanese students from the city of Sendai. I was invited to be the group's photographer for their time in Toronto.
