When the quake hit (April 11) it was raining madly, with thunder and lightning raking across the sky. And then, black out. I thought I was seeing the end of the world.

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.
