Ippon Matsu Beer
Ippon Matsu Beer Fundraiser
In the city of Rikuzentakata, on the northeastern coast of Japan, some seventy thousand pine trees lined the shore and, for decades, they stood as a place of national scenic beauty. On March 11th, 2011, the tsunami nearly swept the entire city off the map. Out of the great forest that once stood, only a single pine remained. For the survivors of the disaster, that one tree became a beacon of hope.
Five years after the disaster, much progress has been made in the area, but a full recovery is a long way away. The people of Rikuzentakata still need our support to help them rebuild their community. This year Ippon Matsu Beer held fundraisers in New York, Tokyo and London, if you missed them you can still help by donating here.
Tokyobike is proud to have sponsored numerous events around the globe for Ippon Matsu and to help raise funds and awareness for this amazing program. We welcome you to learn more about Ippon Matsu here.
Thank you for your support!
