Huis ten Bosch to Accept 1,700 Victims

Nagasaki Prefecture resort Huis ten Bosch and 37 ryokan with hot springs will put up about 1,700 people in 538 families who lost their homes in the Tohoku earthquake, Gov. Hodo Nakamura announced. They will be provided with food and clothing, and the prefecture will assume their transportation expenses to the area. They will also help find places in school or employment for those interested. They may stay until May 11, when the terms of the national government’s National Relief Act are applied. Gov. Nakamura said it was the least the prefecture could do after people from around the country helped Nagasaki following the Mt. Unzen eruption.
