Japan has been hit by an earthquake and tsunami that struck the country on 11th of March. Many organizations have started emergency aid. Those of you who wish to make contributions to the work can easily do so via their websites.
Here in Sweden we reccomend using the Swedish Red Cross page for online contribution to this emergency:
Many kenshi have been to Japan and know many kenshi in Japan, hopefully most of them have survived this catastrofy. So far we have heard from Hombu that all staff are safe, Tadotsu is not in an area that is affected.
Please all do your best in helping out through your countries different aid organisations.
