Today's Pic: Michiko's disaster relief
The Japanese Imperial family continues to make well-publicized public appearances in the continuing trauma of the earthquake and tsunami that rocked the island nation earlier this year. Empress Michiko and the Emperor today visited a fishing village that is not very far outside of the evacuation zone around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Coverage of the ongoing Japanese tragedy may have lessened in international news reports--I'm looking at you, American media outlets--but millions of Japanese people are still being deeply impacted every day.
