[Japan after Quake] Headline Round-up : Jul 4-10



This is a weekly headline round-up of the posts titled [Japan after Quake] on our Facebook page.


[Jul. 4] ‎Ten couples who postponed wedding ceremonies due to disaster come together & celebrate their new lives.


They were supported by more than 200 of their families, friends, and other Kamaichi citizens.


[Jul. 5] Sales of fly swatters and insecticides increase due to poor sanitation in Tsunami stricken areas.


Stagnant water still remains in many coastal areas. The upsurge of mosquitos is also a concern.


[Jul. 6] Mega solar plant will be built in disaster stricken prefs. It will generate power for 30,000 families.


It provides not only electric power, but also chance for employment.


[Jul. 7]  Contact lens maker Menicon requires employees to wear polo-shirts & decrease A/C use, save power.


I think it’s a very good idea, because polo-shirts are not too casual compared to T-shirts. There are six colors to choose from.


[Jul. 8]  Three disaster stricken prefs. see population drop by 31,752 as residents relocate elsewhere.


I wonder how many years will be necessary to recover…


[Jul. 9] ‎”Want to evacuate to grave.” In Fukushima, 93 year old woman kills herself, leaves this final note. Very sad…


This old woman thought that elderly people were sometimes burdens to younger people during evacuation, and she didn’t want to cause trouble for her family anymore…


[Jul. 10] ‎Four months since disaster. 24,000 people still under evacuation & 60% of rubble remains untouched.


Prime minister Kan has a plan to provide temporary housing for all applicants by middle of Aug, but it will be very difficult…


This is JAPAN Style!
