It happened when our Spring travel season was about to start.
Our economy was still staggering, though could see somewhat light through the tunnel.
Our policy was in trouble without strong leadership.
The gap between haves and the have-nots was going to be widened.
People were losing self-esteem, much more than before.
Unprecidented scale of Earthquake, Tsunami and even worse leak of radiactive contamination occurred.
People who were living in the vast area covering 500km suffered from those devastation in a instant.
This is the same distance from Kyoto through Himeji, Okayama, Hiroshima, and to Yamaguchi Prefecture
along the Seto Inland Sea.
To save people, restore the community and economy are the big challenges for the survivers.
However, we all are with them. Other regions will supply all goods what they have right now.
Besides, we will help them to restore their lifelines and livelihood.
We will make up for the their economy.
We have to have such a resolution.
Keep watching the situation, keep contributing something for them.
I started the web page for the tourists who can't visit us at the moment and let them know the strength
of our people and country. Of course I have to reveal the weakness of ourselves as well.
