Example text

If my books have been love letters to Japan, this one is an SOS. I'm both proud and humbled to be part of it, to be in a position to reach others who love Japan and long for Japan so that together we can give back some of what we've received, and to do something to help Japan back to her feet. Barry Eisler Introduction The idea for this book came out of desperation; desperation to do something for a country on its knees. As I write this, intense aftershocks still force me out onto the street with my daughter in my arms, even though we live far from the hardest-hit areas of the country, and far more comfortably than the thousands in refugee shelters.

The phone alarm rings as it always does when a large earthquake occurs, but I don't notice it over the noise in the supermarket. The floor starts shaking a little, and everyone stops and waits. It shakes harder, and everyone starts to panic. The workers calmly gather people around, but the force makes it hard to stand and I pull my phone out to mail Aki, fearing this could seem like a movie, but is in fact real. The ceiling breaks, glasses break, food stands fall, and all I can think of is how not to die.

There are no cherry blossoms. There are lanterns lining the paths and alleys, but they are not lit. Kyoto is on a different electricity grid than eastern Japan, so the city is not so much saving electricity as it is saving money to donate to the recovery. This is largely a symbolic gesture, but its power cannot be underestimated. Tourists and residents alike are struck by the forlorn nature of the Hanatoro this year. There is little romance or celebration. The dark streets and alleys are a mournful sight that tells you Japan is hurting.
