18th May, 2012: The well-known Hard Rock Café is organizing through their franchise in Tokyo Japan a fund raising drive to assist the victims of the recent flooding in Fiji. The Company is doing in recognition and appreciation of Fiji’s assistance to students from Tohuku who were affected by last year’s earthquake and tsunami.
 
Fiji is currently hosting for one year 11 Japanese students who are studying at Adi Cakobau School (02), Nasinu Secondary School (03), and Fiji National University (06). The students are here following an offer of assistance by Prime Minister Bainimarama to his Japanese counterpart last year.
 
Mr. Shinato RYU, the Sales and Marketing Manager of Hard Rock Café in Tokyo visited the Embassy of Fiji in Tokyo yesterday Thursday 17 of May 2012 to formally advise that their five outlets in Tokyo are now organizing a fund raising drive to assist the victims of the recent flooding in Fiji.
 
The Company learned about the flooding and the flood appeal after visiting the Embassy’s website. The Company will present funds collected to the Embassy by the end of May, 2012.
The Company is also encouraging their staff and branches around the world to contribute to the Appeal.
