A brief update, and more pictures from Yasukuni

no images were found


Things are slowly regaining  a sense of normalcy (in Tokyo at least).  While train stations and stores are still darkened in efforts to conserve power, the general mood and atmosphere is much more upbeat.  The fact that the weather is warming up with flowers blooming all around contributes greatly.

There are still concerns about radiation, both in the air and the water, but there haven’t been any alarms (aside from the ocean water) and stories like this seem to indicate that even the media is starting to tone down their frenzied stories of doom and gloom.  I honestly believe that things are ok.  I am still drinking bottled water, y’know, just in case, but aside from that I’m just grateful that things are as good as they are.

I’m uploading a few more pictures I took at Yasukuni last week, which can be seen at the usual place.

    My favorite is the one of the family with the boy holding his hat as if to catch the falling petals!

    Glad you got back and also that you got pics of the area behind the shrine. That’s such a special, peaceful place. Did you feed any of the pigeons? 🙂

    He was trying to catch the petals in his hat 🙂
    I have another picture of someone else doing the same as well that I like even more and will upload that later. Didn’t feed the pidgies!
