Kumiko Peace Tour Concert

Kumiko Yokoi Peace Tour in New York

August 3rd – 5th,

Kumiko Yokoi (Singer and Songwriter) visited New York and had mini peace concerts in The New York Buddhist Church on August 3rd.

On Tuesday, August 5th, in The Japanese American Association of New York, Kids for the Future organized small symposium with Kumiko Yokoi and Kunio Iizuka, an acclaimed Japanese artist. KFTF chairman, Todd Yamamoto spoke out the first time in the public about the next project: construction of Peace Memorial Museum in New York. He said, “Without Japanese people’s support, it can be hardly achieved, so please help us when the time comes.” She and Mr. Iizuka felt the same way and agreed to do their parts.

After the symposium, she took a part in Universal Peace Day, which is for commemorating the 63rd anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
