Flowers Will Bloom Beyond Borders

Culture Crossroads

Broadcast on March 25, 2021 Available until March 25, 2023

In the wake of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, the song "Flowers Will Bloom" was created in support of those affected by the disaster. Now, 10 years later, it is reborn in 11 languages with performances by artists such as May J., Ono Lisa, and Morisaki Win who generously offered their voices. Join us as we learn the story behind the song's inception and look at the disaster area today.
