I know two people living in Japan and both of them were well. One of them, the guy I stayed with in Osaka, was fine as they got no flooding but did see a few smaller quakes.
The other guy lives in Tokyo but further inland and away from most of the flooding. He said they did get some broken things around the house but nothing of any real consequence.
I was glad both of them were fine but I do feel bad for the people in more northern areas that got serious damages. Some pics I saw of the destruction just turned my stomach.
I've been thru a Cat 5 hurricane before and saw what it did firsthand. And that was NOTHING compared to this. I hope everyone affected can get back to a semi normal day soon.
