Tohoku's recovery is long and difficult

(By Noriko Tashiro, an evacuee  at the Akasaki Fishing Village Center, a makeshift evacuation center, in Ofunato, Iwate Pref.) 
Women preparing the food in the kitchen plan menus to utilize all ingredients without wasting them. Canned beans and pickled cucumbers from abroad, delivered by helicopter, taste good.  We think Tohoku’s recovery will be long and difficult, which will not make our life any easier even when we move to a temporary housing six months or a year later.  We consume rationed ready-made meals, like rice balls, now and we save anything which keeps long for later.
