When Fukushima Was Paradise

by Yokai April. 03, 2011 19293 views

Hello my friends all over the world !!

I am very sorry for my long silence. I have been very busy doing my volunteer work since the earthquake occurred. I had no time to reply to your messages.

Your warm words made me really genki(=cheerful, vigorous). I appreciate your kindness from the bottom of my heart !!!

We still have many serious problems -
① The radiation levels are rising.
② Rolling blackouts ( shortage of electricity ) 
③ Many people have lost their houses and jobs.
④ It's impossible to find 18,000 bodies in the sea.

We are going to approach these problems with a positive attitude but it would take 10 years to reconstruct Japan. Please help peace-loving people and keep in touch as ever !!

I hear more than 200,000 fish died from power shortage. We can't see these fish again…

Good-bye, jellyfish…

Sayonara, scorpionfish…

#8-9 : at the beach near Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Plant (2009)

しまひろさん、かなり厄介な問題で、政府としても対応に苦慮しているのがよく分かりますね。有識者や政治家には、立場や党派を超えた素晴らしい復興計画を練ってほしいです。

きらりんさん、原発事故の処理にかなりの時間がかかりそうですね。低レベルの汚染水の放出により、最初は日本に同情的だった人たちも、微妙に感じ方が変わってきているのを感じます。
福島がまたパラダイスになる日が戻ってくるように願ってやみません。

It is hard to believe that this paradise does not existe anymore, at least for a long time. My thoughts are going every day to Japan and the brave people in your fantastic country. Even today we hear the news of a new earthquake in Fukushima... stay strong!

It was so beautiful.
The planet has the power to destroy, but also the power to rejuvenate. It will take time, but surely Fukushima will one day be beautiful and a safe place again.
