Thank you for the thousands of emails in support of the original translations of Japanese Twitter accounts of the March 11th quake on my Facebook note, "Japan Quake as Seen from Twitter". Now, together with ten classmates and friends in the University of Cambridge, I have launched this blog to continue translating the voices of the Japanese people on their road to recovery.

Delivery of Sweets Delight Children

We just received a delivery from my hometown in Tokyo; drinking water, rice, and sweets.  We’re so grateful.  When we found sweets in the box the children went crazy with glee! There was my one-year old son drawing a chocolate moustache on his face with a choco marshmallow, and beside him his five-year old sister digging into the ramen crackers.  My poor children cannot play outside here in Miyagi, so it is such a blessing when there is a nice big surprise for them at home.
