Hope that cannot be lost

I am Yoshida, president of Yamada Shusei Ltd., a professional apparel garment repair group in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture. 


As of 7:50 p.m. on January 6, the death toll from the Noto Peninsula earthquake has risen to 126, with 210 people still unaccounted for. It may seem inappropriate to introduce a movie at a time like this, but it is precisely at times like this that we need to think, hope, and pray for those who are still suffering under the harsh conditions of the disaster.




In the film, the main character Asha said.

"My father taught me." He said, "The stars guide us, energize us, and remind us to believe in our possibilities. My father would take me out at night to dream."And in this film, the stars of the characters play a suggestive and important role for Asha.


Of the star, writer, executive producer, and chief creative officer Jennifer Lee said.


”The star symbolizes what it takes to get through tough times. It doesn't mean that it will help you in any way. But that little bit of magic can help you on the long road. The star is there to remind Asha not to give up and to help her keep hope alive. Possibilities lead us to imagine solutions."


In Noto Peninsula, it is very difficult to grasp the local situation due to the topography of the peninsula, and there are reports of damage in Niigata Prefecture as well. I am living my daily life to the fullest in my own place, and I hope, pray, and take action so that the full extent of the damage will be revealed as soon as possible and appropriate measures will be taken.
