November 3rd was a holiday in Japan and people thus had a rare 3-day long weekend. Taking this opportunity, practitioners came to Akita City to clarify the truth of the persecution of Falun Gong.

On the morning of November 5th, the practitioners came to a famous park in the city to practise Falun Gong and distribute truth-clarification newspapers. It was a sunny day, and many people came to the park to admire the changing leaves or just relax. The practitioners displayed a banner and then started to practise the exercises. The melody of the exercise music and their elegant movements quickly attracted many tourists. They stopped to watch and accepted practitioners' truth-clarification literature. Some took photos of the practice site. For some people, it was perhaps the first time for them to hear about Falun Gong.
At the noontime, the practitioners went to the busy business district to distribute truth-clarification materials. People who came out to shop and have fun formed an endless stream. Many people accepted practitioners' materials and some also asked for more detailed information. Occasionally, the practitioners also met some Chinese people. A Japanese lady asked a practitioner if he was Chinese. She said that she was very eager to learn more about China. The practitioner told her about the persecution: practitioners are being persecuted for their belief in the Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance and are even killed for their organs. The lady said that she understood and encouraged the practitioners to keep up their efforts.
In many remote areas in Japan, there are very few practitioners and thus residents in those areas have not heard about Falun Gong and the persecution in China. After visiting Akita City, the practitioners decided that they would visit more remote areas to promote Dafa and clarify the truth.
