Thank you so much for worrying about me, I already received many private messages from you guys, but I am just OK and so as my family, most of my friends. The earthquake attacked the other side of the country, (Tohoku area, north-east part of main land) and I live in Kansai area, west area of main land. So I didn’t even feel the earthquake, and so far no damage has been reported in this area. But as many of you have seen on TV or News, the damage of earthquake and Tsunami of Tohoku area is extremely huge.
I don’t know what I can do about this…

Anyway, I am OK, thanks again for your kindness.


-- Junji Sugita from Japan,

Glad to know. Many thanks for telling us :-)

My thoughts are with your fellow Japanese, and all the others who may YET be affected by this tragedy.

It is a great relief to know that your family did not suffer the tragedy that has befallen so many people.

Maybe there’s not much you can do right now, Junji, but I’m sure you will be involved in some charity concerts in the near future. Taking good care of your wife and family is important, too, isn’t it?

Good to know you are unaffected – though you must have felt it. I was in Beijing during the 1995 Kobe earthquake and flew back through Japan and flew over Kobe which was still burning at the time ( so I know you already went through one ok). We also had our own here in New Zealand recently. Is the world falling apart?

Great news my friend!!!! So glad you and your family are OK. I understand the United States has sent some warships to Japan to offer any assistance we can. I’m sure that with a disaster this large it’s hard to remain untouched. We will keep you in our thoughts.

Glad to see you are OK, Junji. I didn’t feel anything, having been sound asleep when it happened. Man, that’s a lot of devastation there! I’ve been through two big ones here in SoCal. We got a big whoop-te-do 3-foot swell on the beaches near where I live. I’m about 18 miles from the Pacific Ocean as the crow flies.
