TOKYO, July 12, 2017—Beginning on July 5, record rainfall struck Oita and Fukuoka prefectures and the surrounding area in northern Kyushu, Japan, causing extensive damage and loss of life. We at Canon would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to all those affected by this disaster and our thoughts go out to those suffering in its aftermath.
While we realize that the road to recovery will be challenging and time-consuming, we hope that the region will soon be able to begin the rebuilding and healing process.
