No more "Ground zero" photos. I have evacuated. Can't take shower or bath there. And I just can't stay there to do nothing but consume power, food, water etc which is a matter of life and death for thousands of people who are still locked up in Sendai in a situation a lot worse than me.

I have evacuated via Yamagata, Tsuruoka, Niigata, Tokyo then Yokohama.
2h bus wait in a queue in Sendai in snow, another 2h in Yamagata, again, snow then to Tsuruoka. Most of these locations, especially Tsuruoka, what an inaka...

Restaurant in Tsuruoka - even in Yamagata prefecture on the Sea of Japan side, they are not getting enough food to run their restaurant. wtf. That part should be largely unaffected!


Just outside Tsuruoka station



And finally to Niigata.... Checked in a hotel. 4980yen a night. Let's see what's on TV. While on the way, I couldn't get any info about Fukushima1 as my phone battery was dead.



Niigata station - I got on Joetsu Shinkansen and back to Tokyo.




What an inaka. Never seen before this style of train timetable in Japan.



Just before departure. Tokyo is currently under moderate/subsurface panic and supermarkets are getting emptied and if things go terribly wrong in Fukushima1, maybe I won't be able to get decent food. Higawari mini-sashimi gyudon teishoku.

I see, it's pretty bad there from the looks of it. Most of the news coverage here has been focused on the smaller towns and villages that were hit by the tsunami.

Idiots buying 30 days worth of cup noodle, bags of rice and toilet paper rolls leaving nothing for those suffering in Tohoku!! Apparently, they are worried about something (Fukushima? aftershock?) and stockpiling things in their houses. "Kaidam'e" (買い溜め), in Japanese.

Seriously, that idiocy is not funny.

So basicaly, some have food enough to feed an army while others are starving.

Now safe in Tokyo/Yokohama, by my brother's and parents' place. This disaster report is now concluded. Now my focus is keeping eyes on Fukushima1 and helping those who are still in Sendai and around, like Ishinomaki and Kesen'numa.

Man, I haven't watched anime, played games or sung karaoke for long! After one week since the day, today in Akiba, I finally got back to my normal self :-P :-P






see you in anime thread

# I bought that mug and still buying K-ON dishes tomorrow because I lost all those things in the quake

Once again thanks for the updates, and hopefully life in Tokyo/Yokohama at least gets back to normal (although unfortunately I am guessing it will at least take Sendai a few years at least to rebuild).

I looked at pictures of Sendai before the earthquake. It looks nice, clean and very modern. How much of Sendia is actually destroyed, are most of the building in the city center damaged too or is it just the areas along the coast?

OK, I'm back in Sendai now. Just one hour after arrival, another intensity-2 aftershock but it doesn't count

Nice to see that you are fine. How is life in Sendai this days?

Here's what I saw today:

Combini: Few are open 24h. They open and close. They recently started receiving supplies of bento, onigiri etc.

Daiei in central Sendai is open for shortened times, and only B1(household miscellaneous) and B2(food) floors are open. All other floors are closed.

Some ramen shops are open, but with a reduced selection of menu

Gas is not back on in Central Sendai and restaurants and izakayas are still closed.

Many buildings suffered structural damage and we are seeing "DANGER: DO NOT ENTER" notices sporadically.

My house is still without heating, but I have a thick kak'e-futon :-P

Rail services between Natori and Sendai have resumed today, but unstable damaged building near the railway track is delaying repair works.

Shinkansen service is still halted.

I heard things got a lot better in central Sendai in past one week, but situations in the eastern part of Sendai is still catastrophic. Tsunami water settled down there.

Frequent aftershocks still felt. Today I had intensity 3~4.
