The big earthquake – one year later in my neighborhood

While there were many ceremonies today marking the one year anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake, my neighborhood seemed to be a normal Sunday. I strolled by the neighborhood temple and shrine, but both were closed. Plum blossoms (see photos) were in bloom in front of the temple though, and you can see what a beautiful, blue skies day it is. I then walked on to the supermarket where I was when the earthquake hit. They had memorial signs posted (see photo), but otherwise it was a normal shopping day. I didn’t watch any if the events on TV. doug
