It kinda went under the radar, but yesterday was the 3rd anniversary of the Touhoku Earthquake. According to the latest official report published yesterday, 2633 people are still considered missing, with 6148 injured and 15884 deaths.
Something I didn't realize before is that there are still major aftershocks of this earthquake. I only learned that because me and Berry actually experienced one, coincidentally on the first night of our trip to Japan last year on October 26th.
My tentative plan is to go to Japan next spring (pending approval from my retirement counselor). Hopefully before the next big event happens.
I stayed home and watched tokusatsu shows yesterday, an odd way to commemorate the anniversary, but perhaps strangely appropriate. I watched episodes of "Ultra Seven," "Janperson," "Blue Swat," "Kamen Rider Den-O," "GoGo Sentai Boukenger," and "Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger."
