While I wasn't updating my blog, winter left and spring came. I started traveling around with cherry blossoms.
I am very fine but very busy about my family and business. My mother isn't getting better but isn't becoming worse right now. I started translating jobs besides tour jobs. No time to paint and make pottery now.
I try to make time to come back here. And I'll reply mails when I have time.
Supermarkets and convenient stores in my neighnbour didn't have much food yet. I'll go there early in the morning tomorrow. Since we may have another snow the day after tomorrow, I need food stock for my family.
Compared to other areas, I'm much luckier.
Kofu city in Yamanashi prefecture had the most severe damages and people there are still suffering.
Those photos below are taken randomly from twitter or Facebook.
Some areas are isolated.
Some have blackout.
Some highways have been closed since the 14th. Drivers have to stay in a car or they could evacuate in a shelter
Volunteer groups deliver food to drivers.
A bread delivery truck which was also stucked gave away all the bread.
This bread company "Yamazaki" have its own delivery trucks and drivers can give away food in emergency situation by their own decision, which is the company policy.
