Recovery in Japan: After the earthquake
Getting on with it quietly
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
Over 2 months after the earthquake Tokyo is still agressively conserving power. Now 2 nuclear powerstations have shutdown and one of those is in meltdown. At sundown the lights don't come on like they used to. The Subway stations are dark using only half the normal lighting, escalators stopped and the air con on the trains reduced. On weekends there's not so many people out celebrating the change to the warmer weather either. Last year this park was packed at this time of year. I dont here any complaining about it. People just are getting on with it in their own quiet way. Rest assured Japan is on the mend.
