We have been receiving heartfelt messages from all over the world. Thank you very much for your concern. We would like to tell you that YNU is safe. Fortunately, we did not suffer any serious damage. Yokohama, the city in which our university locates, is 400 km away from the epicenter and tsunami was not very high (It is some 250 km away from Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant). We have not heard of any injuries of our students, faculty and administrative staff.
