Displaced children from the Fukushima Prefecture town of Futaba got a pleasant surprise on Wednesday when Santa Claus visited them in Saitama.
Santa, who is in Japan from Finland, has been visiting children affected by the March 11 disaster. He handed out candy to 40 children from Futaba at Kisai school in Kazo City, Saitama Prefecture, Sankei Shimbun reported.
Santa made a special visit to the school back in July and promised the children then that he would come back before Christmas. One of the children asked Santa what food he likes. Santa said he likes "nikuman" (manju with meat filling) and kombu onigiri (kelp rice balls).© Japan Today
