Three weeks have passed since the huge earthquake and tsunami hit north-eastern Japan. I’ve not said much on the topic recently as I’ve been getting on with life and trying to make the most of my short time left in Japan (three weeks today I will be on my way back to the UK).
However, I came across a new documentary video on YouTube today, which I have decided to share. While I do of course recommend that all of my readers watch this video, I am mainly sharing this for the benefit of my readers who are not in Japan right now. There has been more news coverage on this disaster than it is possible to take in. Watching this video should help you to make sense of it all a bit more, or as much as one can.
I assume this video is factually accurate – it seems to be. My only negative comment about this video is that it seems a little over-dramatic in tone at times, and also fails to mention the rest of Japan (south of Tokyo).
Anyway, please spare 47 minutes of your time to watch this, if you can.
NB. I don’t know the person who uploaded this video to YouTube, or where they got it from. Therefore, I am not sure if that person has breached any copyright laws by sharing this video. I don’t know how long it will remain available to watch on YouTube. If anyone knows of an official source for this video, please let me know. Thank you.
