On this third anniversary of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, all of us at Photohoku are reflecting back on all that has passed, and sending all the love we have to Tohoku.
We’d also like to take this chance to announce the release of PHOTOHOKU (the book)!
Its a free 40 page e-book for your Kindles and iPads, computers and other devices, celebrating what we have all been able to accomplish together, some 10,000 new family photos and nearly 1000 newly started albums. (The JP version is up now and the ENG version will be up momentarily. All the platforms will be released really soon if yours is not up.)
There are not enough words to express our deep thanks to everybody that have become part of Photohoku. A very special ARIGATO GOZAIMASU goes out our families for supporting us an to all the Photohoku members including:
