[Earthquake – Fukushima] We are still alive but really wonder what will happen tomorrow
Hi everyone, just trying to give you a little update on what’s going on here in Japan, on Akihabara News and what will come next on the website.
First of all, I am sure that you are all aware of what’s going on in Japan and what happen this morning at Fukushima… Yes things are pretty XXX-up and to be honest with you there are so many conflicting messages and information that at this point I have no real fucking idea of what is the truth or not!
What is sure however, is that Tepco, the company in charge of the damaged plants remain silent and do not communicate much. You should have seen today’s press conference where Japanese press where verbally “lynching” Tepco’s staff that remained silent and kept pretty much everything too themselves. At this point and despite Japanese Government effort to Join Tepco to solve this crisis, I really wonder if we will know all the truth and what the future of millions in Japan will be.
Despite all of that, Japanese people remain clam and silent, but if you ever drop by a store or a convenient store you will quickly realize that many shelves are empty without any hope to get more stock in the near future.
As I said earlier and due to many conflicting information available to us, many people, Japanese or foreigners are slowly flying Tokyo to visit relatives in the south or at least find a place to rest as far away as possible to Tokyo for the next few days.
Some of my friends already left Japan or flew to south of Japan. Other, like myself are planning to live Tokyo for a certain period of time in the coming few days.
So yes if you are wondering, I am schedule to live Tokyo This Friday to fly back to France with my daughter. My Wife and I decided that we should at least make sure that our soon to be 4 year old little princess to be kept as far as possible of this mess for a while. I am supposed to fly back to Japan a few weeks after I dropped my daughter in order to help my wife and her relatives here in Japan.
Also, as you can imagine, from this Friday and most probably until Monday 21 we may not publish any news on Akihabara News, however, I will try my best to work as much as possible to give you update on the latest tech News from Japan, Korea and China during my stay in France. Also please understand that we won’t publish any new Let’s Visit Tokyo until things are back to normal here in Japan.
Finally to give you a grasp of the situation here, I took some pictures today of the “crowd” of thousands of foreigners in Japan trying to renew, like me, their re-entry visa. Whatever your visa status in Japan, and even if you have like me a Permanent Visa in Japan, you are still oblige to apply to a single or multiple re-entry visa every three years. Mine was suppose to expire at the end of this month and flying away from Japan without this Re-entry Visa will automatically void your Visa, Permanent resident or not. Anyway, something that usually take 20 minutes at best took me today seven hours! Arrived at 10 Am this morning and I was already the number 2340!!!! I reckon that we were around over a thousand people at the immigration bureau at any given time of the day.
So, sorry guys, if this post if full of grammatical mistakes or written in poor English, but I am just exhausted and I have a lot to prepare to put our little girl into safety. And if you ask yourself how you can help AkihabaraNews, well just use your imagination, I am sure that on our pages there is something or a service offer by one of our sponsor that will pick your curiosity.
