Japanese Deputy Foreign Minister Makiko Kikuta visited the IDF aid delegation's medical clinic in Minamisanriku, a village heavily hit by the tsunami.
She toured the facility and met with delegation members led by Col. Dr. Ofir Cohen-Marom, who communicated via IDF translators.
Half of Minamisanriku's 17,000 residents died in the tsunami. Even the mayor was injured and pleaded for help, which the IDF team provided.
