Assessing Japan's Quake; Remembering China's

Monday, March 14, 2011

James Fallows of The Atlantic magazine is currently in Beijing, but he has lived and worked in Japan. He also witnessed the powerful earthquake that hit China in 2008. China, still scarred by the 2008 Sichuan quake, has expressed admiration for the way that Japan has responded to Friday's earthquake. Although the relationship between China and Japan strained, many Chinese have expressed compassion for the country.

Kaz Fujimoto, a store clerk with Katagiri & Co in New York is originally from Yamaguchi, Japan. He responds with the view from the Japanese community in New York.
