The people of northeastern Japan are suffering after the brutal magnitude 9.0 earthquake and 10-metre tsunami on 11 March, which washed away whole towns and damaged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The total count of dead and missing has reached 27,000 souls, with nearly half a million survivors left homeless or without basic supplies.
Japan has given so much – music, tech, videogames, anime and thousands of years of unique traditional culture. Let’s give something back.
