The Tokyo Hackerspace site is offline at the moment due to a tremendous surge in traffic. The members with IT expertise are working on it now. In the meantime, if you want to send material donations, you can send them to us at the hackerspace and we can box them up into care packages and have runners distribute them to the local drop points for relief efforts. Here is a list of what's needed, compiled from various organizations and also hackerspace members. We deliberately trimmed items that are heavy due to international shipping costs.

The address to ship material donations to is:

Tokyo Hackerspace
Tokyo-to Minato-ku
Shirokanedai 5-11-11
108-0071
