Niihama, Japan, 9 November 2010 - "After the Second World War, many of your big cities were really destroyed. But than you built a new world from the ashes. The same as with Germany. While modernizing, you also kept your traditions." His Holiness greeted his Japanese audience with these hopeful and complimentary words, as a crowd of 300 or so filled a hall in the picturesque town of Niihama, on the Inland Sea island of Shikoku, on the third full day of his autumn tour.
