Thanks friends! I'm OK, 大丈夫(dai-joh-bu)

My dearest AnD friends,Thank you so much for caring about me and my family members. really happy to get your messagesof love and concern from all over the world. definetely each of them gave us great power. AnD is really wonderful!!I have been sticked close to home with my family soon after the earthquake. so went to see my apartment in Shibuya for my first time this afternoon. Its good weather Sunday but there are pleny of seats on train,  far fewer people were walking around town. fortunately there is no damage in my sparsely-furnished room on the 4th floor. all remains at the correct positions and only the fire extinguisher in the kitchen was down. all of the residents are safe, but some on the upper floors seemed to be scared for their lives, when the heavy bookcases or kitchen cabinets were slipped on the floor and then fallen down. the other had fear to see the cracking wall of his room on the 7th floor. The apartment built 5 years ago and I know it has a seismic reliability. however needs to be made more resistant against giant earthquake!After that, i dropped by Tokyu Hands to get emergency supplies just in case. too late!!  the strage racks were empty. i missed spare flashlights, tabletop stove burner and etc. actually the power cut for 3 hours a day starts Monday. but no need to worry cause we are willing to contribute by trying to save electricity. no need to worry about my starvation, cause ive got enough food (except water bottles, sold out!) at nearby supermarket. I really want to deliver them to suffering people... well, there is something I want to tell you. As you know, the internet and phone lines have been busy, and i rarely use them for those who need the emergency contatcts in affected areas. it took 2 days for my friend from Sendai to confirm her parents safety because of busy line. I'm deeply worried about other AnD friends looking for information on their uncertain families on twitter. give prayers for all safety!! that means, I am away from AnD, twitter (am lazy twitter though) and others for some time. so dont worry if no reply is received. I'M  SAFE. NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS. it should be remembered how much I appreciate you all. look forward to chatting with you soon. Take care everyone!!  Love you all!!  Yours always,Yoko

It is so good to hear that you are safe and well. The images and video coming out of places like Sendai are truly frightening and sad. Take care and periodically let us know of your situation.

My dear friend, In this time of feeling helpless - all I can do at this stage is pray. Please let me know if we can help in a small manner - (our Sunday school children would love to help somehow)...I don't know how...but know that if you were closer a hug and help would have been there in a flash. take care and be strong. love from South Africa.

My dearest friend, I'm so glad that you and your family are in good condition! We still praying and making our little contribution to rebuilt Japan (we contribute with COA-Centro Okinawense Argentina-Okinawa Argentinean Centre and the Japan Embassy) and wanting to do the difference. This is the time for solidarity and strength ties between Japan and Argentina. I hope the Japanese people be ok soon, and recover from this natural disaster. Lets keep working for a better day. Our best regards for you and your family. Keep safe. We love you. Jorge

It's good that you're safe. My parents have friends over there in Japan and we aren't quite sure how they are. They live just south of Tokyo. My thoughts are with the rest of Japan.

hmm...what does 大丈夫 mean? In Chinese it means very masculine man. Recently i frequently meet with this word (i go to Google Japan though i don't understand Japanese^^) Be very careful. You really are not alone. And your whole country, too. Sleep.

I send a message to all my friends in Japan, everyone is safe, I wishes. Some friends already given feedback quickly, but someone is never no reply? How about their feelings? God bless you all! Hope we keep in touch. Considering my great-grandmother is Japanese, I keep her picture and tissue in my album. I exist my good memories in Japan. Hope we finished difficult soon and meet all my friends in Hong Kong and Japan again.

Yoko, I haven't been on AnD for sometime but I logged on just to see how you were doing. Glad to hear you are ok because it is scary.... I know a friend's brother is studying in Tokyo and he is facing the same issue, no electricity and no water. Hope you guys keep ok and update us when you can! All the best (my thoughts are with you) - Jason
