I was wrong! JRC not in Mori Tower

Ooops! Sometimes I get a bit confused, actually I must have mixed some stuff up earlier, the Japanese Red Cross are not located in the Mori Tower!

I apologize for the mistake! Please forget all about it and move on with our lives and keep donating to them!

Sorry everyone who commented earlier on the post, I was straight up wrong so best to delete it before I give anyone else the wrong information!

You need to stop drinking the tap water. Or start drinking it.

So where do the JRC homies actually hang out?

Thanks for making the correction.

Regarding that infamous Mori Tower, I just thought you should know that despite having there own gas turbine generation system underground and thus don't need to conserve power, they are asking all of there tenants to reduce their power and have turned off the escalators, etc, just like everybody else.

The reason they are doing this is because they are taking their own power and putting it onto the TEPCO grid, trying to give back.

I don't know if they receive tax credit or any sort of compensation for doing this, but I thought you should know anyway.

Disclaimer: I work in the Mori Tower.

Yeah, I feel a bit embarrased about it actually... I think that I googled it and for some reason got one search result that I didn't click that said "red cross Japan"... ... ... "office in Mori Tower" which made me assume that they were in the Mori tower and then this stewed in my brain for a few days without me thinking much about it until I thought I should do a post about it (still, I don't think it would have reflected horribly badly on them in any case since they are a "brand" organization). But then after a few hours I realized that I probably should check just in case so I didn't post any desinformation that could put people off donating...

Their head office is in the Roppongi area I think, but in their own building (I'm sure it's still quite nice, but within reason I hope).

I wish we had a reserve generator here in my house... I would sell some power to my neighbors in exchange for toilet paper...
