How a Sake Brewery coped after the earthquake in the Fukushima region

An interesting "good news " article of how a famous Sake Brewery fared during and after the March 11th Earthquake and what measures they took to ensure their products were not contaminated.
It is pleasing to read that recently their sales have risen since the quake.
Read the story here

The Brewery is the Daishichi Sake Brewery in Nihonmatsu town and the same web site has a nice article explaining it's history and the artisan brewing process.

Daishichi Sake Brewery article.

The Brewery also has a good web site in English and Japanese

Company web site ( in English )

If I can track down any suppliers of their products in the U.K. I'll update the post later ,
I like a drop of sake.

Sanriku Oyster Reconstruction Project

I saw a documentary on NHK world T.V. about Oyster farmers trying to restart their business after the Tsunami wiped it out. It led me to investigate a bit more.

Interesting Documentary Film maker

I hope these films get a release with English sub titles some time .

The film maker is Ayako Imamura , and I read about her in this news article

There is a web site about her most recent film here in English and Japanese

and a website here for her film production company ( in Japanese )

plus a blog here ( also in Japanese)

According to the article Ayako's current project is a film about deaf residents in Tohoku in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami.
