In the case where the first studio of “Kyoto Animation” in Kyoto City was set on fire and 36 employees died, the company and the bereaved family began exchanging opinions on whether to build a memorial monument on the site of the site.
In July, the first studio of “Kyoto Animation” in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto was set on fire, killing 36 employees and seriously injuring 32. After the building was demolished, the area around the former studio site was covered with a fence, leaving it as a vacant lot, and no specific utilization policy has been decided.
According to the company’s agent, about 30 bereaved families attended the meeting for the first time on the 4th of this month on whether to build a memorial monument on this site, and the bereaved families are strong against the construction. There was no dissenting opinion.It is said that the company and the bereaved family have confirmed the policy of continuing discussions and gathering opinions in the future.
Regarding the site, the local neighborhood association has submitted a request to the company not to build a memorial monument that is visited by an unspecified number of people.
One of the bereaved families who participated in the discussion meeting said, “I don’t know what the discussion will be like in the future, but I’d like to somehow leave my name in the place where I worked.”
Another bereaved family said, “Since many people have died, I want you to build a memorial monument on the site as a memorial place as soon as possible.”
