Tohoku Springs Back 

When: Sat., March 12, 7-10 p.m. 2016
Price: $50–$75
Five years have passed since a catastrophic tsunami struck Japan’s Tohoku region, killing more than 15,000 and causing a full-blown nuclear disaster in the Fukushima prefecture. To commemorate the anniversary, the Japanese gift store Umami Mart and UC Berkeley’s Center for Japanese Studies will host a fundraising dinner at the David Brower Center (2150 Allston Way, Berkeley). Chef Tori-chan, a Fukushima native and the owner of a restaurant in Tokyo called Jicca, will put together a spread of traditional Fukushima dishes, such as shiso-wrapped miso rolls, shio koji pickles, and miso-marinated roast pork. To drink, there will be sake from a brewery that was rebuilt after having been wiped out by the 2011 tsunami. Event proceeds will benefit Y-PLAN Japan (an exchange program that has hosted hundreds of Tohoku youths) and Safecast (a foundation dedicated to sharing reliable radiation data online).
