“It’s Friday already. I am sorry for checking in so late.
I really appreciate your concern on the situation here. Thank you, Thank you. Thank you all of you.
As you already know from various news and other sources, crisis in Japan is still not over. Nuclear disaster is not getting any better. Probably the level of fallout in Tokyo, Kanagawa and other Kanto areas are not as serious, but still people are scared. Report of tap water contamination and ban on vegetable markets is not helping at all. No, you can’t buy any bottled water anymore in Japan, because the government ordered all the stocks to be redirected to relief effort and supplies for infants in affected areas. We pray (literally) for the digits for isotope readings not to increase any more than it is now.
Many workers at the Fukushima site are heavily exposed to the intense radiation. Two workers were hospitalized today. I believe TEPCO, the operator of this failed facility, has a lot of explaining to do. (Two weeks before the earthquake, the authorities found some of their devices and equipments at Fukushima site had not been checked many years, some of them over 11 years. And apparently, TEPCO did not think it was a big deal.)
At work, the blackouts completely destroyed our productivity, and everyday we are trying to solve many utility issues. Otherwise we just keep losing business. We do not complain blackout itself (this is not the time to be selfish), but we just want the blackout schedules to be released in advance. Again, TEPCO is not forthcoming with its plan. This whole thing worn me out this week. So I was not able to check in this site earlier. I posted one review at my site, which I had written up sometime ago.
Enough for complaining. Oh, one more. I couldn’t catch any of NFC’s rare Japanese film screenings. No rare Naruse, Hara and other fascinating films. I missed all that. And it would be another five or six years before they open up the vault again. Depressing.
So, I decided to watch Tai Kato’s Yakuza movie on DVD tonight.
