This is the full speech that His Majesty the Emperor of Japan gave on Sunday 11 March 2012 during the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami memorial service that was held at the National Theater in Tokyo, Japan. I filmed it at Shinjuku Alta Studios where the whole ceremony was broad casted onto the giant screen facing the station.
