Tsunami in Japan

We were glued to the TV on Friday night watching coverage of the Tsunami in Northern Japan then started emailing our Japanese friends to see whether they are all alright (yes but shaken mostly).

Today it became more obvious which areas were affected and one of the worst places seems to be Matsushima which we went to in January and really liked. I bought two Kokeshi dolls in a little shop there from an elderly couple and I do hope they managed to evacuate the shop before the tsunami hit.  Here are some photos of Matsushima.
