The young king of Bhutan Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and queen had been in Japan as the first national guests after the March 11 2011 earthquake and the radioactive disaster.
On November 18 2011, they visited Soma City in Fukushima Prefecture and talked to children in an elementary school. The king talked about a “dragon” in everybody’s heart.

Bhutan is a “country of dragon”. There is a dragon in a national flag.

“Do you know that the dragons exist? I’ve seen the dragon. There’s a dragon in each and every single one of us.
Dragons feed on experiences. It becomes stronger and stronger over the years. We must always be in control of that dragon.”

(From NHK News (11/18/2011))

He told the children to be strong, and their hard experiences feed the dragon inside them.

The king visited Japan with company of Buddhist, performed a ritual of consolation for the dead at a location in the city where the tsunami swept off everything.

We appreciate the warmth and the support from all over the world after 3.11.
