A South Korean aircraft carrying relief goods to the quake-hit prefecture of Kumamoto has arrived in Fukuoka, southwestern Japan.
The Korean Air plane flew into Fukuoka Airport from Incheon on Wednesday morning. Relief supplies, including 24,000 bottles or about 36,000 liters of drinking water, will be transported by trucks to Kumamoto Prefecture.
On Tuesday, Asiana Airlines, also of South Korea, offered the prefecture a donation of 10 million yen or about 92,000 dollars. The airline also transported 1,000 blankets via Fukuoka Airport.
Interim Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha announced on Tuesday that the government will donate 100,000 dollars to help victims of the quakes. He said the Thai government is ready to offer additional aid if necessary.
Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej earlier offered condolences following the quakes.
While a large number of Japanese companies operate in Thailand, a record number of Thai tourists have visited Japan in recent years. Their destinations include Kumamoto and other prefectures in the Kyushu Region, which were chosen for making a popular Thai drama.
