Yairi Guitar, the famed guitar maker in Kani, Gifu Prefecture, is using pine trees knocked down by the March 11 tsunami to fashion instruments in hopes of engraving the disaster on people’s memory through music.

The guitars will be played in a musical planned for March in Tokyo’s Ginza district performed by some 100 disaster survivors. The performers will sing songs accompanied by the guitars to express gratitude for the reconstruction support both from home and around the globe.
