In Oyama, Tochigi Prefecture, about 70 Nepalese gathered in a park on Sunday evening. After a silent prayer, they lit about 200 candles that formed an outline of their country.
The participants donated money to help survivors in Nepal.
A 32-year-old man said he wants the money to be used to provide food and water to the survivors. He said he wants to see Nepal rise from the destruction as Japan has done with people working together.
One of the organizers said that survivors are suffering because they lack food.
The group is planning to hold a charity fundraising event in Tochigi city on May 23rd.
Many survivors of the recent major earthquake in Nepal are believed to be stranded in mountainous areas with serious injuries.
The quake struck on April 25th. More than 7,100 deaths have been confirmed in Nepal and neighboring countries. The number of injured has topped 14,000 in Nepal alone.
The Nepalese authorities are moving seriously injured survivors from mountainous areas to hospitals in cities by using helicopters and other methods.
The country's neighbor, India, and other nations are helping with the transfers.
About 30 seriously injured people were brought to a hospital in the capital Kathmandu at the weekend. They included a 79-year-old man with spine and leg injuries.
The patients received treatment in tents.
A doctor at the hospital says many people were seriously injured in the quake but they couldn't get treatment for days. The hospital performed more than 30 operations on Sunday alone.
The doctor says the hospital sent its own medical team to mountainous regions and transported the seriously injured to Kathmandu by car.
But the doctor adds that this is just the tip of the iceberg and injured people urgently need to be moved to medical facilities for treatment.
