The Japanese embassy in Hanoi is opening a funeral book for Vietnamese individuals and organizations to commemorate numerous perished victims in the devastating earthquake and huge tsunami that hit northwestern Japan on March 11.
Local people can offer their condolences to the victims or put garlands at the embassy’s premises provided that they inform their intention to the security guards first.
The embassy is scheduled to welcome guests from March 17-18 and from March 21-23 (10:00-12:00 am; 13:00-16:00 pm).
The embassy will close its funeral book on March 21 (Japanese holiday).
Although the Japanese Consulate doesn’t welcome guests on that holiday but it’s ready to greet people who want to share this pain with the Japanese.
