an old house in Odaka before broken
yesterday, severe earthquakes and tsunamis attacked my country, and we suffered great damage from it,
I was safe, but in Tohoku area, the disaster is incredible,
today the disaster looks enlarging time by time,
I wish the victims and damage not to increase and to be minimum...now,
this was an old house in Odaka Town at 2004, but yesterday it was completely broken and washed away by severe tsunami, and whole town is too,
and I'm afraid of the Odaka-Shrine to be destroyed...
no points please.

It was a shock to hear this news on the radio yesterday morning. Seeing images is even more saddening.
I admire Japanese people for their grace, their dignity and now, more than ever, for their determination.
My thoughts of hope and courage for the people of Japan.
ikeharel (52153) 2011-03-12 2:12
We watch CNN all the time to updated on the Japan's situation, and pictures coming not seem to be optimistic, by hope for the better.
This houes's picture is a good documentation to past, already not there - and good that you had kept this in archives.

Deepest syamphaties, our thoughts are with the people of Japan during this difficult time. I have no doubt that Japan will overcome this setback with courage and dignity.
fabianoleite (9371) 2011-03-12 7:41
It's a pitty that nature claimed this simplle and beautiful house. The architectural style of Japan is really beautiful. I really wish that God help you all recover from this disaster, and that the pains may be diminished with time. I know Japanese are very strong people that have already survived lots of man-made and natural disasters, but it must be very hard. May God help you all!

Hello Dear Akihisa,
The world has been hanging onto each word from journalists reporting the earthquake and tsunami, and the aftershocks. I hope that you and your family are alright, and I am happy to see a report from someone I know on Trekeart who has experienced the unspeakable tragedy at first hand. The Japanese are known worldwide for their courage and resilience. I have no doubt that as a nation, Japan will bounce back stronger than ever.
I want you to know that all of your many friends at Trekearth wish you and your countrymen continued courage and strength. You have our sympathies and warm wishes.
siudzi (32323) 2011-03-15 14:13
this is very beautiful picture as well as your note.
I strongly believe that you and your close family will soon see a better days. I pray for that. Please take care.
Warm regards, Malgorzata
BWJ (3022) 2011-03-15 19:34
Please know you and all of the people of Japan are in my thoughts. The pictures and reports of the devastation from the earthquake and tsunami are alarming. I hope you, your family, and friends are warm and safe with plenty of food and water. Yesterday when the television news was reported from Japan, snow was falling there. I was reminded of your beautiful snowy landscapes posted on TrekEarth.
With caring concern and my deepest sympathy.
mkamionka (29169) 2011-03-16 4:19
I am so sorry.
Hearing the terrible news I first thought about you because as far as I remember you are living in the north. I am glad that you are OK.
annjackman (17747) 2011-03-17 0:23
Everyday I look at the sad news coming from Japan. I am so pleased that you are safe. There are many challenges ahead for Japan and I will be thinking of you. I have never been to Japan but your photos have shown me a beautiful country. Stay safe.
Best wishes, Ann

I am shocked to see those horrible things happening in your neighbourhood!
I guess man doesn't have much to say when nature gets really angry...
I sincerely hope you and your dear ones are fine, if fine is the right word in a context like this!
jimmj63 (2303) 2011-03-19 15:36
I was apprehensive for the scary images from your country and I'm apprehensive now for the nuclear damage.

Hi Akihisa, What can I say?, it's tragic the resent events that have happened in Japan & I wish you & the Japanese people well for the future, when I saw the news reports I just could not imagine the terror the poor victims must have felt, so you & your family & friends please look after your selves, kind regards Wilson.
fotka (3255) 2011-04-05 11:21
I am glad that you and your family didn't suffer during the national tragedy. As a rest of the people I also watch every day reports from Japan about the earthquake, tsunami and now damaged Fukushima nuclear facility. I pray for better future of your country and I belive that after "storm" sun will shine again for Japanese people. You and Japanese people are in my heart during this difficult time.
