I like Matsushima and am happy is wasn't destroyed. Lots of damage apparently, but compared to elsewhere it was somewhat protected. I wonder if the famous long red bridge survived? Eerily, I was going through my photos of my last trip there just recently - and saw I had taken one of big tsunami warning sign...

@tigerguy: What a pointless, thoughtless comment on a single article trying to depict something good right now.

Depending on the wind direction, they don't know how many radioactive particles they are breathing in. It seems like a beautiful day though.

It truly is amazing that Matsushima got so little damage. The islets protected the town. I just love to enjoy that view from the top of the pagoda there.

I don't want to disregard the suffering and damage from this episode but life will slowly return to some sense of normality. It will take time, but it will happen.
