I live in kanagawa,Japan(away from disaster area at 300km) .
Last week I went to edge of tsunami area for volunteer work, it was very shocking scene.
This disaster is very sad, and maybe long long time is necessary for recovery from this damage.
But, please, do not believe wrong information.
"Tokyo is turned to ghost town because many people run away"etc, many wrong information written on the web.
Currently we(without disaster area living peoples) doing normally daily life except for little power saving.
A lot of japanese(of course, me too) have expressed gratitude for the support of each country.
If you want to know the local information of japan, then please contact to me.
