Japanese tsunami town gets mystery gold gift – Australia Network News – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

A Japanese city devastated by the 2011 tsunami has received anonymous gifts of gold worth more than US$250,000 in a phenomenon dubbed a “goodwill gold rush” ahead of the second anniversary of the disaster.

The president of the company which operates the port in the north eastern city of Ishinomaki last week received a parcel containing two slabs of gold each weighing one kilogram.
