Wakame Rice--Earthquake Supplies

Today was the anniversary of the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. There are disaster drills across the city every year. It is the first day of school after the summer break and students participate in drills.

There are displays of earthquake supplies and equipment in stores. I bought some new packaged food to store in our shed. This is wakame rice. The expiration date is June 2014!

Just pour hot water in . Wait and eat from the package. Check out the labels below for more information about earthquakes and wakame.

Check this post about The Wakame Gatherers a picture book by Holly Thompson and Kazumi Wilds.
