Flying the Japanese Flag at Half-Mast


March 11th, 2014

Nippon Kan is a US Federal and State Non Profit organization (501(c)3) and all of the Nippon Kan Board Members are American. Therefore, since the beginning, we have flown the American flag in the Nippon Kan gardens every day.

Every day that is with two exceptions. The Japanese flag is flown on December 23rd in honor of the Japanese Emperor’s birthday and on the anniversary of 3/11, the Japanese flag is flown at half-mast in remembrance of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster.
