Tokyo Kanjo (feelings)

This article neatly sums up the feel in Tokyo right now...

"Low levels of radiation have been detected well beyond Tokyo, which is 140 miles (220 kilometers) south of the plant, but hazardous levels have been limited to the plant itself. Still, the crisis has forced thousands to evacuate and drained Tokyo's normally vibrant streets of life, its residents either leaving town or hunkering down in their homes.
The Japanese government has been slow in releasing information on the crisis, even as the troubles have multiplied. In a country where the nuclear industry has a long history of hiding its safety problems, this has left many people, in Japan and among governments overseas, confused and anxious."

I will post more soon... but overall I have to say that despite the craziness, Tokyo will easily rank as one of my favorite cities in the whole world.  More on that later...
