Japanese National Anthem

Japanese National Anthem, originally uploaded by licca-kikuchi.

So I sang Japanese national anthem at the charity basketball game on last Sunday. I was very honored to be able to sing our national anthem in the stage! After earthquake, I recognized how much I care and love my country and I'm so proud to be Japanese. Japanese team lost this game, but it was pretty good game and I really enjoyed it! I think this event increased the awareness of disaster and I hope we can keep supporting the victims in Japan.
