Shibuya after Tokyo Earthquake 2011
It is fairly quiet in Tokyo at the moment, a day after the 8.9 Magnitude strike in Tohoku northern Japan. I went out to Shibuya in the afternoon to see what the mood in town was. There were as many people out as normal, but more than half the stores were operating, although some at a reduced level.
We have been asked to conserve power at the moment as the stability of the electricity supply may be uncertain with Japan’s nuclear reactors damaged.
Here are a few photos showing the scene to be fairly normal and calm in Shibuya
