I’m sure you have all heard about the huge earthquake that hit the north eastern region of Japan. Thankfully most of the country has not suffered any loss, although hundreds of thousands in the immediate areas of the earthquake, subsequent tsunamis, and now fear of nuclear meltdown, have become displaced by this tragedy. I know Japan is a resilient people and have recovered from past tragedies that would have decimated a society. The next few weeks will be a testament of their strength as I know they will swiftly rise past all this. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.
These are some images that i captured at various locations around Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, and Hiroshima in the spring of 2009. This is part 1 of a multipart photo-journal as a tribute to Japan. God bless.
