A short history of the “Para Japón” concept:

In March 2011 La Aurora hosted a media event at their factory in the Dominican Republic. Invited to this event were many members of the online cigar blog community who have become a vital part of the cigar industry today. During an evening discussion at the hotel where the attendees were staying the topic of the recent devastation in Japan came up. Cigar Explorer founder Mario Takayama (a native of Japan) described the area of Japan most impacted by the earthquake/tsunami, and just how much this destruction of that region will set back the country as a whole. As most conversations of this manner play out, the idea of “what can we do to help?” arose. Guillermo quickly came to the decision that he really had to do something, so the idea for a cigar (Now know as “Para Japón”) will be produced, and all the proceeds from the sale of the cigar will be donated to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief fund thought JAPAN TOBACCO IMEX CO. LTD, La Aurora Distributor in Japan.

Great idea for a great cause.

Hats off to La Aurora for this as well as NiceTightAsh. As if I didn’t love La Aurora already. Good job all.

Really looking forward to having the opportunity to try this cigar. Kudos to the good people who made it possible.

Since I heard about the Para Japon I had to commend La Aurora and their generosity. Very cool.

I have family that lives in Japan and I am all for any concept that gives aide to the people in the disaster area. I especially like a concept that allows me to support a cause while indulging in my cigar habit :)

Wow! Good concept, i have a few friends in japan! ive yet to try a la aurora though :(

Every little bit helps. Cool idea!

This is what its all about–Great idea passing on the much needed help–Thumbs up!

good idea to support Japan.

Great cause – very nice to see La Aurora step up & take initiative – maybe it will inspire other companies to join in or do the same.

A great company helping a truly great cause. Hats off to everybody that has supported.

Excellent cause! Hats off to you!!

great concept from a great cigar maker!

Excellent idea to raise money for a great cause! Well done, La Aurora!

i’m a fan of the effort and cause :)

My first smoke ever was a La Aurora. I have been privileged enough to meet Mario also and I love the idea behind this cigar. Great cause.

Thanks for the contest; my sympathies for the Japanese.

It’s outstanding to see a cigar maker as well as the entire cigar loving community step forward to help make a difference for people and a country in dire need after such devastation. Two thumbs up to La Aurora!

This really makes me love La Aurora even more. Many of my immediate family live in Tokyo, so this disaster and all the great people coming together to help out really hits home. Thanks for everything La Aurora/Miami cigar is doing for this cause!

Awesome idea, i know nothing we can come up with or even dedicate to that area will make anything change, it is still an aweful thing that has happened over there…

Great idea! Hats off to La Aurora and all others involved!

No better cause, at the moment. And what a grand gesture from one of the greatest cigar makers in the world.

Awesome cause! I look forward to being able to support through my purchases and enjoyment.

I really hope I win. Never tried these sticks before.
