It has been 3 weeks since the earthquake in North Japan. Whilst supplies are no doubt in short supply in the areas hit hardest by the earthquake we can see some footage on television of evacuation centers receiving goods and how grateful people are just to get the basics delivered.
Their was a slight shortage of some supplies in Tokyo immediately following the earthquake, but things are quickly returning to normal. The photos I took today at a supermarket were taken about 1pm, so the store had already been open for quite a while. As you can see the stocks are returning to the shelves in force.
It is good to see things slowly getting back to normal in Tokyo. It is not that far from the earthquake damaged areas to the North, but was lucky to escape any serious large scale problems. Hopefully, people and businesses in Tokyo can focus on their work but also provide some assistance to those not so fortunate in the Tohoku region.
