Title: The Buds Are Still Tough at Yonomori

Introductions of the animals looking for foster homes are summarized here. Please, introduce this to your friends and family, and if you could put flyers in stores around your neighborhood we would be very grateful!

We request that you share and spread this as well!

Yesterday and the day before we did activities in the former evacuation zones. I was feeling a little down in the dumps… tired… things hurt here and there… sluggish… headache… can’t move (or is that typical for me(^_^;))

Sorry for cutting corners with this entry, but I’ll at least give a report…

We had no issues doing rescues for two days in Namie. The cat we believe to be a father cat born before the disaster was very cautious, and even though he was obviously very hungry as he circled around the rescue cage he wouldn’t get inside.

We put food into a dummy cage and let him get to it for several days and he finally got inside in the middle of the night. We rescued him first thing in the morning. As we departed, Occhan and the other laborers saw us all off.

It’d be great if they found happiness.

Just like the cherry trees of Yonomori the buds in the former evacuation zones are still tough and we can’t predict when they’ll blossom.

People think blossoms will start to open after the 12th, and as we went to town hall to get our permit we heard them saying that holding the festival on the 8th might be too early.

The logo for Tomioka Town was apparently designed to include three “To” characters.
Flower motifs are often used in logos, but I’m surprised it’s not a cherry blossom.

 

Yonomori’s Tsutsumi Park has had early blossoming✿

There are rows of plum trees there but they’re not being tended to, so they don’t bloom quite as vigorously.

At the time sanctions were lifted in this area, radiation levels were at 2.4 microsieverts. It will be a long while before cherry blossom festivals can be held once again at Tsutsumi Park.

Tomioka’s Sakura Mall opened all of their stores today, and I really wanted to go but I couldn’t… A supermarket was opened in a lively area and the people that have decided to live here must have waited for so long. This is something that makes us volunteers very very happy(=^・^=) I’m so happy to see the life return to Tomioka Town, which suffered so much cruelty after the disaster. There are various problems, but it seems that from now, medical facilities should improve.

We’re cheering you on.
