Wow! Stop complaining? I did not see it coming. I am on their side (those in Rikuzentakata). What the people in that town are facing and fighting against deserve to be heard. Japan's paralysis is truly heart breaking.

Junko, Thank you for your article. I believe Japanese people do not know about what you pointed out in the article. The sad thing is that Japanese newspapers hide this kind of information. BR,

I'm sorry. I didn't really read your article carefully and was not expecting the author to reply.

After the Xenia, Ohio tornado, you could still see damage scars twenty-five years later. I have been to Sendai, Japan before the tsunami. It will be many years before they can even restore the basic services, so I suspect they will be rebuilding for many years to come. These things take time. There are no immediate miricles for planning a new environment and getting everything cleaned up and rebuilt. Patience please. Just my opinion.

Why comment on something you have not read? Beyond moronic.

Why is it, every time someone raises an issues that needs some social involvement, some non-participant cries, "Stop complaining"? Junko, you are doing a wonderful service by reporting on this. Perhaps it will embarrass the people who have been enlisted to resolve this problem enough to entice them to do the jobs they are being paid to do. Anyone that believes the public should "stop complaining" and put up with whatever injustice is thrown at them is being completely unrealistic. Nothing happens unless someone complains. Only a Mother Teresa does something completely out of the goodness of her heart. And the world is lacking in Mother Teresa's.

Well put. The world won't become a better place if we all just keep our heads down and won't raise an issue.

It is not an issue about stop complaining. The issue is about a realistic understanding about the magnitude of the damage they need to undo. Complaining about something not being done instantly creates a needless redirection of resources that in the end takes longer to implement than the initial plan. Until you have seen a city rebuilt, you have no idea about all of the issues involved. I wish there was a magic wand or a global undo button, but rebuilding communities takes time. Don't shoot the messenger just because you disagree with the message. Just my opinion.

I agree with EREBUS, and for Junko I know how you felt to you fellow japanese aspecially in the disaster zone. But to redeveloped a proper infrastructure in the disaster zone take long time and with the scale of disaster because it involve many issue to consider but I can`t accept if Japan Gov can`t ready the basic and important thing. All in all not to expect fast or blink of the eye recovery. Thanks.
