It doesn't feel like 4 years has passed since the quake. For many of us, life is back to normal, no more electricity rations (the costs has been hiked up though) and the stores are full stocked.
We do still check where produce has come from, and it is such an ingrained habit now, I think I will be doing it forever!
The carp things is that there are still thousands of displaced survivors still living in temporary accommodation and not being assisted in the way that they should. All very sad and all very unnecessary. But there are some great projects going on, rebuilding and bringing life into the devastated areas. Of course Fukushima nuclear plant is still a major problem, one I hope they get sorted sooner rather than later.
So today is about remembering, the good, the bad and the ugly.
