It Was Beyond My Imagination

Japan was struck by three disasters simultaneously (four major earthquakes, tsunamis and radioactivity). This was one of the biggest disaster the world has ever seen.
I visted the disaster area to rescue the family of an acquaintance. (140 degrees E 55' 29" 36 degrees N 56' 6").

Big ship and cars were scattered here and there and damaged by tsunamis. I hope that time will heal and ease the damages by earthquakes tsunamis. However, I believe in Japanese Government and the electric power company about the radioactivity accident.

YMB Cancelled Burnal Equinox

As all the world might be aware,
the great earthquake struck Japan and devastated many cities and towns.
The consequent accident of an atomic power station
that supplies electricity to the Tokyo metropolitan area
causes the power shortage in this region.
The planned power outage is conducted almost everyday.

As such being the case, the Yokohama Marching Band
has regrettably decided to cancel its performance in Burnal Equinox.
Instead, we are resolved to cooperate in recovering the suffered region
and in revitalizing Japan in a way or another each of our members can.

We sincerely appreciate the Burn2 staff who have invited us to the event
and all the residents who are looking forward to our show.
We don't know when, but we are sure to come back to the playa.
Please wait for us until then.

Thanks again and best wishes to you all. Twitter「つぶやく」ボタン

Great Earthquakes in Japan!

I cannot help but writing about the great earthquake in Japan. In fact, it was not a single earthquake: Several earthquakes occurred almost simultaneously in different places. Tsunami does not give enough away. Aftershocks are still following. The maximum earthquake was 7 on the Japanese intensity scale with the magnitude of 8.8. 12 hours after the earthquake, we were surprised by the location of the seismic center. There were three centers. Off the coast of Sendai, off the coast of Ibaragi and even in Nagano, the inland Japan! The dead and missing persons are under the destroyed houses or buildings or swallowed underwater. Even the most crowed areas of the cities were swallowed by the tsunamis. People all over the world should not forget this lesson. The tsunami was terrible. Fortunately, there were no victims of our band members. Many thanks for the messages from the world of condolence, sympathy and encouragement. Twitter「つぶやく」ボタン
