Earthquake in Japan – A Tokyo Perspective

March 11, 2011 a massive earthquake hit 81 miles off the northeastern coast of Japan causing tsunamis which created huge amounts of damage and as of yet untold loss of life.

In Tokyo we felt the affects over 200 miles away. That was the worse quake I had ever experienced. My room shook violently and things began cascading off my bookshelf. There were hundreds of people outside not sure if the next Great Tokyo Earthquake had come. There were some sizable aftershocks minutes afterwards and we are still feeling them now.

The worst though is up north where whole neighborhoods have been washed away by the tsunamis. There was even fear of a nuclear meltdown at one of the plants in Fukushima but it seems (knock on wood) that the situation is under control.

  1. Hey Samurai Dave,

    I found you on milk and cookies a while back and enjoy checking out your updates on Japan here on your site.

    I am glad to see you are alive and well after and during all the quake chaos.

    Stay safe and keep posting!
