The Torii Gates are sacred wooden structures that were washed out to sea after the 2011 Fukushima earthquake and tsunami. Eventually, these structures floated across the Pacific ocean and were found 2 years later on a beach in Oregon. They were returned to their original location in Japan and rebuilt to great significance. A piano student of Lisa's painted a picture of the disaster and Lisa composed a piano piece to represent the event. A video about this story was created and won the Emmy.
