* 外国人から見た日本人 http://twitter.com/kiritansu/status/46335057689980928
外国人から見た地震災害の反応。物が散乱しているスーパーで、落ちているものを律儀に拾い、そして列に黙っ て並んでお金を払って買い物をする。運転再開した電車で混んでるのに妊婦に席を譲るお年寄り。この光景を見 て外国人は絶句したようだ。本当だろう、この話。すごいよ日本。

I heard that some foreigners were impressed to see these:In the super market Japanese picked up some products which is fallen to the floor and put them back to the display cabinet, or kept in line and purchased neatly. Or.. in crowded train, an old guy gave his seat to pregnant woman and other nice activities what Japanese done. I believed those story and their reaction was true.

Transport facilities were dead and I was so tired waiting so long. Then, a homeless guy gave me a cardboard saying "use this, it can warm you up". I used to pass homeless people by even when they were begging... Although what he did to me was such a sweet stuff.
* ディズニーランドでの出来事 http://twitter.com/unosuke/status/46376846505426944
ディズニーランドでは、ショップのお菓子なども配給された。ちょっと派手目な女子高生たちが必要以上にたく さんもらってて「何だ？」って一瞬思ったけど、その後その子たちが、避難所の子供たちにお菓子を配っていた ところ見て感動。子供連れは動けない状況だったから、本当にありがたい心配りだった
* At Tokyo Disneyland
They distributed sweets that are part of their merchandise. High school girls with heavy makeup took away more candies than they would possibly eat and that raised my eyebrows. Later, I saw those girls giving the candies to kids at evacuation areas. Families with kids had limited mobility and couldn't get to where the candies were distributed. Go girls!
just a few twitter translates... very heart warming.
The twitter comments shows good heart. Especially the one with the homeless man, just goes to show that even those who has nothing are capable of giving. How is that for guilt tripping? Damnn Posted via RS Mobile
man.... i got family living in the northern coastal region of japan.... i just hope they're ok... my families unable to get in contact with them.... sad shit... all we can do is pray they're hangin in there
Just keep trying, man. I spent all Friday calling my friend's cellphone. Sometimes it would ring, other times it would be unavailable, other times it would ring and drop off... Pretty random & unreliable.
When I got through, it was such a relief. I could hear car alarms, police sirens, and loud talking in the background. The latter is the most surprising because the Japanese are usually very quiet and timid in public spaces.
Best of luck.

Minami Sanriku, Japan (CNN) -- A 60-year-old Japanese man was rescued Sunday more than nine miles out at sea after clinging to the swept-away remnants of his home for more than two days.
"I thought today was the last day of my life," Hiromitsu Shinkawa told his rescuers, according to Kyodo News Agency.
