Two months after the devastating events of 3/11, the 7-Eleven convenience store (see photo on Flicker) in the tsunami-ravaged city of Iwaki in Fukushima prefecture is back in business.
3/11 in Light of 9/11
I recently discovered an interesting Yokohama blog, Loco in Yokohama. Well I actually didn't "discover" it. It's a popular Japan-based English language blog that has been around for a while. In the author's insightful essay (From 9/11/2001 to 3/11/2011) on the 3/11 earthquake he delivers a stirring and thoughtful account of that fateful day as he experienced it from nearby Name of the Chrysanthemum Station and neatly ties it together in light of the impact the events of 9/11/2001 had on him.
