According to NHK news web easy, on 15th, the volcano erupted in Tonga. Due to the difficulty in contacting abroad by internet and telephones what damages have occurred is unknown. Kochi prefecture has decided to raise the fund in order to help people in Tonga.
In 2019, when Rugby World Cup was held in Japan. the Tongan rugby players practiced at Kochi City, Kochi. The players taught the high school students how to play rugby and interacted with the people in the city. Kochi also sent a car for collecting rubbish to Tonga.
The prefecture said they will consider quickly how and where to raise money. The staff said 「We would like to help Tongan people as quickly as possible」.
