Kawai Responds to Japan Tragedies
Kawai is thankful to report that our facilities were not damaged by the massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami that ravaged northern Japan. Our home city of Hamamatsu is located quite a distance south of the epicenter and remained safe from the devastation.
As a company, our heartfelt sympathies go out to all who have been affected by this terrible tragedy. Kawai Japan operates several music schools in the affected areas. As yet, we have been unable to reach any teachers or students associated with those schools—but we continue to hope for good news regarding their wellbeing once communication to the area is restored.
We are grateful for the many e-mails and calls we have received expressing concern for our company and our people—and would ask our friends and industry colleagues to join us in directing thoughts and prayers toward Japan in support of the rescue and relief effort.
