Dear Friends 12 February 2012
It's been a while.
We have unusually cold weather in these days in Japan.
We heard about the frozen water pipes of the temporary houses on the news.
The staffs of Tonaribito have been organizing informal get-togethers at the temporary houses.
I feel sorry for the residents of the temporary houses.
Many people have exhausted the unemployment benefits.
The population of Sendai city is gradually increasing from the disaster.
Many people who had been employed in the fishing industry are flowing into Sendai city.
I visited Sendai Airpot.
Because Sendai Airport is located near the coast, airplanes and automobiles were swept away.
The special team of US Air Force cleaned them up.
You can see the article from below.
I saw as the same airport building and runway as I knew befor the disaster.
But many pay parking lots around the airport remained closed.
And I saw the town which has only a few houses remained.
We have the busy time for the university in Japan.
We have just finished the entrance exam and term exam.
The day after tomorrow, the senior students have the workshop.
The next month, they have the commencement.
But many of them didn't find their job.
Just one month left befor the next 11th March.
I knew of the anniversary reaction from the leaflet which was distributed in the university.
The first anniversary will make me remind the days last year.
But we must not forget about suffering people in disaster areas.
God bless you!
