東北地方太平洋沖地震に関する天皇陛下のおことば(平成23年3月16日)

<英文>

この度の東北地方太平洋沖地震は,マグニチュード9.0という例を見ない規模の巨大地震であり,被災地の悲惨な状況に深く 心を痛めています。地震や津波による死者の数は日を追って増加し,犠牲者が何人になるのかも分かりません。一人でも多くの人の無事が確認されることを願っ ています。また,現在,原子力発電所の状況が予断を許さぬものであることを深く案じ,関係者の尽力により事態の更なる悪化が回避されることを切に願ってい ます。

現在,国を挙げての救援活動が進められていますが,厳しい寒さの中で,多くの人々が,食糧,飲料水,燃料などの不足によ り,極めて苦しい避難生活を余儀なくされています。その速やかな救済のために全力を挙げることにより,被災者の状況が少しでも好転し,人々の復興への希望 につながっていくことを心から願わずにはいられません。そして,何にも増して,この大災害を生き抜き,被災者としての自らを励ましつつ,これからの日々を 生きようとしている人々の雄々しさに深く胸を打たれています。

自衛隊,警察,消防,海上保安庁を始めとする国や地方自治体の人々,諸外国から救援のために来日した人々,国内の様々な救援組織に属する人々が,余震の続く危険な状況の中で,日夜救援活動を進めている努力に感謝し,その労を深くねぎらいたく思います。

今回,世界各国の元首から相次いでお見舞いの電報が届き,その多くに各国国民の気持ちが被災者と共にあるとの言葉が添えられていました。これを被災地の人々にお伝えします。

海外においては,この深い悲しみの中で,日本人が,取り乱すことなく助け合い,秩序ある対応を示していることに触れた論調も多いと聞いています。これからも皆が相携え,いたわり合って,この不幸な時期を乗り越えることを衷心より願っています。

被災者のこれからの苦難の日々を,私たち皆が,様々な形で少しでも多く分かち合っていくことが大切であろうと思います。被災した人々が決して希望を捨てることなく,身体(からだ)を大切に明日からの日々を生き抜いてくれるよう,また,国民一人びとりが,被災した各地域の上にこれからも長く心を寄せ,被災者と共にそれぞれの地域の復興の道のりを見守り続けていくことを心より願っています。

宮内庁、震災被災者を支援

日本の象徴であるはずの皇室はここ数年、現代日本の実像とはかけ離れた存在になりつつあった。しかし、東日本大震災を受けて、天皇陛下が国民に対し前例のないビデオ・メッセージを発表されたのを皮切りに、皇室は国家的な支援として、これまで厳正に守られてきた慣例にとらわれない異例の対応を次々に打ち出している。

Yomiuri Shimbun/Associated Press
Workers栃木県にある那須御用邸の職員用宿泊施設(3月26日)

25万人近くの被災者が今も一時避難所での窮屈な生活を余儀なくされているなか、宮内庁は、栃木県那須町の御用邸にある職員用浴場を避難している人 たちに利用してもらうと発表した。さっそく20人以上の避難者が、いつもは宮内庁職員専用の風呂につかった。これら避難者は、津波で厳しい状況に陥った原 発がある福島県からやってきた人々である。宮内庁によると、このような形で皇室関連施設が一般に開放されたのは今回が初めだという。この浴場は4月末まで 利用可能の予定。

一方、御料牧場で生産された食料が被災地の避難所に出荷された。栃木県の高根沢町と芳賀町にまたがる御料牧場での生産物は通常、皇室やその公式行事 のためだけに利用されるが、今回避難所へ寄付されることになった。出荷されたのは、鶏卵約千個、豚肉ソーセージの缶詰280缶、鶏肉の燻製など。宮内庁の 当局者は、前回の自然大災害となった1995年の阪神淡路大震災当時、皇室用食料が提供されることはなかったと述べた上で、今回のケースに関しては、物流 という点で避難所が御料牧場に近いことが要因となったと指摘した。今回の物資支給の決定が天皇陛下による歴史的なメッセージ発表の前と後のいずれの時点で 下されてたかについて、この当局者はコメントを控えた。

計画停電が東日本で引き続き実施されるなか、皇居・御所もそれに合わせ、自主節電を続けている。東京電力では輪番停電の対象地域を5つのグループに分けているが、皇居では3月15日以降、第1グループの停電に合わせて電力の使用を控えられている。

また日本の報道機関によると、天皇・皇后両陛下は今月30日に東京都内の避難所数ヶ所を訪問することを検討されているという。実現すれば、菅直人首 相より一足進んだ動きとなるが、宮内庁はこの報道の確認を差し控えた。菅首相は大震災発生からの数日を除けば、公の場に姿を見せることがめっきり少なく なっており、そのような機会は現在、短い会見に限られている。同首相は地震が起きた翌日に被災地を視察したが、予定されていた2度目の視察は悪天候のため に中止となった。ただメディアの間では、大きな被害が出た岩手県陸前高田市を4月2日に視察する方向で調整に入ったという情報も流れている。

皇居・東御苑に都内の避難者を招待 宮内庁

2011.4.6 11:48

 宮内庁は6日、東京都内の避難所で生活している東日本大震災の被災者を皇居・東御苑に招待すると発表した。休園日に東御苑を開放し、ボランティアガイドによる見学会や皇宮警察音楽隊によるコンサートが行われる。

8日に味の素スタジアム(調布市)、11日に東京武道館(足立区)、15日に東京ビッグサイト(江東区)の避難者を招待。都がバスで送迎し、昼食代も都が負担する。希望者は開催日前日の午後3時までに各避難所の受付で申し込む。

同庁は「桜をはじめ見ごろを迎えた花や、江戸城の史跡を楽しんでもらえたら」と話している。
