Assistance for Reconstruction
Nikon provides emergency support for areas stricken by large-scale natural disasters.
In the year ending March 2016, Nikon donated money for the victims of the earthquake in Nepal and the victims of typhoon number 18 in Ibaragi and Tochigi. Nikon also continues its support for reconstruction of areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
This project grants junior high school students in the disaster-stricken areas the opportunity to experience photography. Nikon expects the project to help junior high school students share various feelings with others and to encourage them to use their own individual strength to aid the reconstruction effort.
The Nikon Plaza Sendai is a complex facility. It provides a multi-purpose space at no cost to the people of the Tohoku region and it also houses an on-site service center for the repair and maintenance of imaging-related devices.
Since the fiscal year ending March 2013, Nikon has continued to support OISCA Japan's Coastal Forest Restoration Project, by donating money to the project and participating in supporting activities.
