earth hour tokyo

(ginza, tokyo at 9pm)

Since the earthquake, Japan seems to be spiraling into chaos. Due to one nuclear plant down, tokyo and surrunding areas have regular "black-outs", (where electricity of an area is cut-off for 3hrs) and the country is on a huge campaign to reduce energy. These posters are everywhere. Shops close at 6pm and even the biggest busiest areas feel like ghost towns at night. Tokyo is "earth hour"-ing every day.
Coming out of a terrible disaster, the country seems to be heading into a new lifestyle of change. It's exciting to think of the possibilities.


  1. So happy to hear that some good is coming out of this tragedy. Positive things are happening. Well done Japan.

  2. Yay! Positive outcomes.
    The impact of tragedies are changed when lessons are learnt..
    I hope the same could be said for the Australian Govt. paying more attention to Climate Change after the QLD flooding. But am not so sure yet, given the NSW election results :(
