I was in Japan on 3/11/2011 at the Tesudo Hatsubutsukan (Omiya Train Museum) during the Tohoku Earthquake. I was able to shoot video footage about 1 minute AFTER the shaking started. I added this video to youtube if the above one is not working. You can view it here.
Quite a few problems with overly aggressive tourists to Tsukiji Fish Market have caused restrictions on access and the aggressive banning of children in the inner market place recently. You can see reports on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzBwtylHiqo You can see my gallery page for more pictures of my short visit in January 2009.
