The terrible tragedy in Kyushu this weekend has brought back the feelings of the Great East Japan Earthquake from five years ago. Seeing the long lines in front of the convenience stores on TV, really made me remember the pictures I took in Akita in March of 2011.
Japan rushes to aid earthquake victims as storm approaches.
Last week’s phrase: Fall down 7 times, Stand up 8. 七転び八起き, seems to need to be repeated again and again. Japan is great at recovering from tragedy and disaster. I know they will do it again.
Here are some of my pictures from March 2011 in Akita.
