"Ganbappe, Fukushima (Let's do our best, Fukushima (in the local dialect))! Magenedo, Miyagi (We will not lose, Miyagi)! Ganbappeshi, Iwate (Let's do our best, Iwate)! And Ganbaro, Japan (Let's do our best, Japan)! Let us continue to send a shout-out that has been heard across the country since the immediate aftermath of the earthquake. Let us all Japanese people join hands and together create a page in history titled, "Japan's rebirth through reconstruction," while giving our support to the people faced with daily hardships in the affected areas throughout eastern Japan."
