The evacuees complained before that Norika is doing all this for publicity.

She brought a little comfort to a lot of elderly people, in temporary homes...

Publicity or not, it was a gesture that some people appreciated.

It mus suck for celebrities who actually want to give back to the community, as anyone should. Anytime they do anything good, they get accused of doing it for the publicity. Good for Norika.

Well said Maria, You are only incorrect about one thing though, they get accused of doing it for publicity by bitter foreigners who love to bash Japan on this website. Thumbs up to Norika.

Publicity works both ways. Publicity for her, or publicity for the people who are still stranded in temporary homes, that many of the rest of Japan have almost forgotten.

Keeping them in the frontline should be in most peoples minds - this kind of publicity is a good thing.

^^ THIS.

I completely agree. Norika was on TV and she made some old lady in the Fukushima evac center very happy.
