Performed at the Uluwatu temples because of its religious significance to the Balinese and it's physical connection to land and the ocean, the prayer ceremony lasted 30 minutes.

Bali's governor Made Mangku Pastika ,who attended the "Pray for Japan" event, said that Bali's relationship with Japan is not limited to only tourism, explaining that following the 2002 and 2005 Bali bombings the Japanese actively assisted the people of Bali.

Explained Pastika: "This activity was purposely held at Uluwatu with represents both the hills and the ocean. We hope that our prayers for the victims of the tsunami in Japan will be heard and receive divine blessing."

The governor went on to say he hoped the Japanese will persevere and have the strength to face this disaster, buoyed by the moral support extended to them by people around the world.

The first time that any foreign nation has been so honored by the people of Bali, the consul-general for Japan in Bali, Shirota Minoru, thanked the people of Bali for their concern and support, saying, "Bali is a true friend of Japan."
