Hawaii is heavily dependent on the income that Japanese visitors bring to the islands. There has always been a strong affinity between the two island chains — even before Pearl Harbor! Junko and Malcolm held a benefit featuring Malcolm’s Natural Beauty & Long Life Curry!

Even now, the aftershocks are numerous and heavy.

Just the next night after returning to Tokyo (April 7), there was a big shaker closer to the coast than the monster that caused the nuclear plant disaster. It was 16 km deeper, though and no tsunami.

Here is an interactive map of earthquake activity that timeline begins two days before the great quake, when a magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit off the coast shortly before noon March 9.

Here’s a helpful radiation dosage chart.
