Response to the Great East Japan Earthquake

I would like to express my warmest sympathy and condolences to those who have been affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
At the same time, I would like to show my highest regard to those who are engaged in the rescue and reconstruction efforts. NAIST will
offer as much help and support as possible in this critical time.

I have sent a letter out explaining the earthquake and its effects, our current situation and that we were almost unaffected by the
earthquake here at NAIST.
