Just a quick update!
All is well.
The news coverage is painting a very bleak picture and certainly it very bad in the north of Japan. However Tokyo has been minimally effected. The earthquake disrupted the trains but apart from that there was little damage.
There has been a bit of panic buying. Mostly perishable goods such as meat, bread and vegetables. Water and dried goods are in plentiful supply at present. The Miso supply seems unaffected!
Last night around 5am there was another strong earthquake. It was very short though and after leaping up and making sure the TV/fishtank was safe i went back to sleep.
Currently the Nuclear Plant situation doesn’t look too good. Tokyo is a long way from the effected area though, and I live in the south of tokyo itself. Hopefully they can get it back under control!
