Fukushima and the power of Music

Fukushima is located in the north-east region of Japan and is approximately 200km from Tokyo. The “city” of Fukushima is in the middle of the “prefecture” of Fukushima, and the Fukushima Music Hall is more than 60km away from the Fukushima Daiichi Plant.

Although there is no restriction advised on Fukushima city, we keep monitoring radiation doses cautiously to ensure visitors' safety.

Fukushima is known as the Kingdom of Choirs. We have a number of award-winning choirs and music lovers.

We are sure music has the power to get people together and bring about hope and encouragement.

We are now rebuilding Fukushima with the help of music.
