Tokyo Metropolitan Government accepts donations for those who affected by the quake/ tsunami in Tohoku from citizens live in Tokyo. Please note they limit variety of goods they accept as is seen below.

3. Health Care Goods

4. Drinking Water

* All products must be new and packed in bags/ boxes.
* Tokyo Metropolitan Office does not accept clothes and food (except for baby food and baby formula) at this time.
* Individual donation should be packed in cartons and delivered (by postal service, KURONEKO or other methods) to 
Tohoku-chiho Taiheiyo-oki Jisin Kyusai Busshi Reception Counter, 
2nd Building, 1F, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, 2-8-1, 
Nishi-shinjuku, Shinjuku, Tokyo 
(〒163-8001 新宿区西新宿2-8-1

* An instruction, 東京都救援物資在中 should be written on each carton 
(or “Tokyo Rescue” may be fine…, I guess).

* Individuals can walk in to the office above to drop donations. However, professional delivery is most recommended.
* Tokyo Metropolitan Government Tohoku Rescue Office: 03-5320-4585, 9am-6pm
This is great for smaller packages and parcels - if everyone can send there personal donations to the government office this will free us up to concentrate on bulk supplies and the next stages of our plan - This will include setting up a soup kitchen to provide hot food to an affected community and to plan the concert - we are welcoming ideas of where to send the concert proceeds and will discuss that at our meeting on Wednesday. A few ideas floating around would be to adopt a community hospital, school or community centre and help to rebuild with the money we raise.
