Fukushima Lives

Fukushima-ken neighbors Ibaraki-ken (our fair prefecture) to our north.

After March 11, 2011, many people in other countries have viewed the entire area as if it no longer existed.  This view is very distorted and far from objective.   Certainly, there are problems - mostly due to the damage of the tusnami, and of course due to the resulting catastrophe of the nuclear power plant meltdowns.  But Fukushima is alive and its people carry on as exemplified in this video about one young woman's determination to help preserve and be part of the local traditions.

It is easy to get caught up in simplistic news coverage and forget that home is an important place. Thank you for the reminder.

1,000 years.


Funny, A friend who grew up with me in Massachusetts hated living out west in Colorado. He said everything was too new and there was no history.

The 200-odd years of our American history cannot compare...
