Five large paintings drawn by children in Ukraine with wishes for peace that commemorate Japan’s 2011 earthquake and tsunami are planned to go on public display simultaneously in five Japanese cities on Friday, the 11th anniversary of the disaster, Jiji Press has learned.

The five cities are Fukushima, Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The city of Fukushima is in the same prefecture as Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, where the country’s worst nuclear accident occurred due to the March 11, 2011, natural disaster.
