You're not likely to see any type of looting here, but if it happened, it would be very minor. Though I'm no expert on Japanese culture, I've been here over 2 years. I can say that the Japanese are the most courteous, kind, helpful, giving people I have ever met on the planet, and I've been to over 34 countries thus far. The organization is incredible as well. One interesting tidbit of info...almost all people back their cars in parking lots. The reason is that it helps expedite an evacuation (less accidents by backing out, plus it saves time).



Sounds like a swell place to live. How do they treat foreigners?

Stay safe and keep us updated!


Thanks. Will do.

You know what's funny...every time I stop moving (walking, running, etc), I feel like we're experiencing another quake. Many of my friends said they feel exactly the same psychological effect. The quake was pretty terrifying and lasted quite a while. You could see the ground ripple and everything...EVERYTHING moving. Spooky. For some reason the motion sticks with you.

Agreed. If you blow the containment building apart, the radiation levels inside the building will go down.

The purpose of the containment building is to keep the radiation contained. I don't believe it is doing that anymore.
I will go out on a limb and say that is a bad thing.

I can never say enough about that. You know how you get treated with customer service at Wal-mart? Well, swing that around 180, then amplify it 1000%. Most folks don't speak English well, but they will go out of their way to understand and help you to the fullest extent possible. That's what we've seen in these 2 years.

And hopefully the Japanese courtesy is contagious, but I won't hold my breath.

Stay safe over there, I wish I could do more to help right now.

Just came in on twitter:




Japan nuclear plant update: Hourly radiation leaking from Fukushima is equal to amount permitted in one year, official tells Kyodo


I've asked for sources no reply yet. But have to go now. Man this is bad. And to think that the aftershocks could continue for weeks... I hope that if they will they will be minor and don't cause anymore trouble.

I do remember in high school I had a class about architecture, they said Japans buildings were made to move. This would allow the building a bit of 'give'

Never truly understood with the meant till I saw the videos of the building!! It's fascinating to see how well thing are actually holding up compared to all that could have gone even worse if they hadn't been properly prepared.

We keep hearing about the plant in Fukushima, but what about the others in the affected area?

This was also stated earlier in the thread. I'll back track and see if I can't find a link for the info.

Quake moved Japan coast 8 feet; shifted Earth's axis


(CNN) -- The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis. "At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).

Great. I've been three times to japan, if they didn't treat me good i wouldn't have visited that country that much (like other places like egypt where you get as a woman treated like an object
)
Japan is really a great country with really nice and fun people, we had a lot of tun every time - except maybe for Hiroshima, nice people, nice city but just looking at the bomb dome gives you a really sad feeling.

It's the same feeling i have since the quakes, i made some friends in tokyo, i feared for the worst and i still do, especially now with the nuclear problems

I really hope this country and the people somehow can get out of the mess as unharmed as possible.

Been watching a Japanese news channel and there was a mag 4.4 quake near Niigata at about 11:35 pm their time (ten minutes ago). I only mention it because it's on land and on the other side of Honshu from where the aftershocks have been happening -- meaning on a different fault.

Yes they are really focusing on that it seems. I'll try to find some alternative news websites / sources to see if they are focusing on other plants. But Twitter is a good source for updates, i'll try a search there.

This has probably been posted tons of times, but it's the primary site we use to see the strength of the quakes/aftershocks.

Japan Meteorological Agency

I don't think we can really feel magnitude 1 or 2, but maybe that's why it still feels like we're moving. We've been getting these almost constantly. Again, it could just be the psychological thing (that's what I think it is).
