Welcome

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.

March 11th, A Day To Show Kindness To Those Who Grieve


3/11、いろんなことを思いだして調子が悪くなることもあると思います。被災地のかたにかぎらずです。むろん被災されたかたはおつらいと思います。だれかをなくされたかたの悲しみは想像しきれません。身近にそんなかたがいたら、あたたかい言葉かけをする、3/11はそんな日でもあると思います。

March 11th, this day will always bring back sad memories, not only people in the effected regions.  My heart goes out to the people in these areas.  I cannot even begin to imagine the grief of losing loved ones.  I believe March 11th should be a day when we show kindness to those around us who are hurting, those who grieve.
