Nuno-zori fundraising

Eco-samurai is moving to a new website
Updated version of "How to make nuno-zori" will be added shortly.
In the meantime, enjoy new posts.

I went back to Japan in July for 3weeks.

The whole country is still in the state of shock from the aftermath of earthquake and tsunami. In addition people are forced to live with the threat of radiation.....nobody knows exactly how it will affect them, their kids and the environment.

Immediate 15% reduction of energy consumption was almost mandatory. And people are making efforts everywhere on a daily basis.

And people are starting to think about energy a lot. I mean A LOT. Everybody is now thinking why they had to rely so heavily on nuclear, and what they have been risking by doing so. I think Japanese people are starting to realize what was really going on with nuclear policy.

Anyway, the recovery from earthquake will take a lot more time and money, and also I would like to help support renewable energy in Japan.

Most popular posts in this blog has always been Nuno-zori, so why don't I use Nuno-zori to help support sustainable recovery for Japan?

The company that make Nuno-zori books and kits, Cotton B's, graciously Ok'ed for me to translate "how to make Nuno-zori". My idea is to sell the book and the kit.

I will write more details in the next posts, but if you are interested in this project please let me know.

Tsunami-quake desaster: Think, ecosamurai, think!

Yes Japan is on the huge subduction area. Yes there are a lot of earthquakes.

But this was nothing we've known, this was nothing we could imagine/expect.

I am urged to do something. Only thing I can think of is fundraising, but....

What should be done to help them, and in more sustainable way?
Of course we are witnessing the world's safest nuclear power plants in trouble.

But right now we should focus on the rescue.....

If you have any idea please let me know.
