letter from Tokyo, March 2011

We received these words from the PechaKucha head-quarter in Tokyo this week-end:

Dear PechaKucha Night organizers around the world,

We knew it had to happen sometime and here we are with an 8.8 earthquake, the biggest ever in Japan.

But we are all safe at PechaKucha HQ in Tokyo. Thank you for all you messages - we really appreciate it.

Central Tokyo was lucky, only light damage, but as you will see from the TV news the coastline has been devastated. We are trying to get in touch with the PKN organizers in Sendai - very close to the epicenter - and Nagano, but had no replies yet.

Our thoughts our with the whole country.

Astrid, Mark, Tomoko and Jean

..and our thought are with you..

PKN points this info page if you want to know how to help: ultrasupernew. And Morten, one of our fellow organizers of PKN Tromsø, posted a few words on his blog this week-end.
