Radiation levels are rising in the Tokyo water supply and Chief Cabinet Secretary Edano said "Don't let babies under the age of one to drink from the tap". Bottled water sold out quickly at Yahoo! Japan Shopping after we got the news. Crazy... "don't panic, calm down" is what I want to say to the Japanese people.
Ken Watanabe created the site "Kizuna311" with his fellow artists to support the disaster-hit areas. He read a famous poem called "Ame ni mo makezu" that was written by Kenji Miyazawa, a poet from the Iwate prefecture (part of the tsunami disaster area). This is one of my favorites, a beautiful poem. This translation is better than the video.
