>This place should not be disturbed

This is not a place for you to live in.
You should stay away from this place, and then you will be safe.

No matter if you are for or against the use of nuclear power, with Japan in mind, this is a very interesting documentary film. The future will be far more turbulent than what we’re experiencing right now. 

As of today, I was supposed to be on my way to Tokyo and spend three weeks in what I believe is one of the most interesting countries in the world. Unfortunately, this did not happen. 

I’ve been dreaming about visiting Japan for over 20 years. I was supposed to go last year, but ordinary life got in the way. When I finally got my shit together, the shit hit the fan… I will not give up on Japan, though. The sun will rise again, and I’ll be back.
As for now, my heart and energy goes out to the people of this brave country. Hail to Japan!

  1. >Hail Amaterasu — the cosmic goddess of sunlight will eventually rise again, although it will perhaps take a good while this time. And hopefully I will return to this very interesting archipelago. As much as I am interested in Japanese history, spirituality, ethics, literature and popular culture I still would have to say that I love pink mini skirts, depraved night clubs in Shibuya and twinkling lights even more. At least when I am drunk…
