The Japanese embassy in Qatar has opened a book of condolence for victims of the Tohoku Pacific Earthquake and tsunami.
Residents of Doha can head to the embassy on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am to 2pm to sign the book, which is in the Consular Section.
The embassy is closed on Mondays.
Ambassador Kenjiro Monji says in the Gulf Times:
The challenge to reconstruct the nation will be enormous. Yet, with the help of our friends around the world, I believe that Japan and Japanese people will be able to overcome this national crisis, as has been the case in the past.
The embassy is also accepting cash donations all week, in the form of Qatari riyals or US dollars. These donations will be sent to the Japanese Red Cross Society to help survivors of the earthquake.
Donations will be received at the Consular Affairs Section from Sunday to Thursday, 8am to 3pm.
Direct bank transfers are the fastest way to reach the victims. More information on that is here.
Anyone going to the embassy should bring their passport or ID and park their cars across the road in the open space opposite the embassy.
