Books about the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Tohoku

Since I have a Kindle I go less often to my favorite bookstore Kinokuniya, but I recently went there for a while to see the latest Japanese book releases. I found shelves and sections dedicated completely to books about the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Tohoku, whose consequences we are still living in Japan.

There are books that compile, explain, analyze and reflect on everything that has happened, others explain how to be prepared for a nuclear catastrophe, some others analyze what needs to be done from now on so that Japan can recover from the damage, other books are focused on the economy, others on how to reconstruct the most affected areas, etc.

    Hello! I found your blog via the Japan Blog List and I have a question for you.

    As I am moving to Japan in the coming months I am making a list of places to go and things to do while in Japan. I would like to make a similar list for my blog featuring other Japan bloggers.

    All I ask of you is to send a paragraph (or more if you’d like) explaining your favorite part of Japan and why, maybe include a picture of it if you’d like. Just send me an email at kaleyjapan@gmail.com with your reply (or questions) and I’d love to feature you!

    Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you!
