“There's a god for that”

Every journey is an adventure, but when a major earthquake strikes Japan, triggering cataclysmic events, the author's travels are cut short.

What starts out as a quest to discover the sacred meanings of the native Shinto religion, becomes something much more profound.

When all of the fail-safe mechanisms at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Station are overrun, and thirty million lives in the greater Tokyo region are in peril, everyone is forced to confront the reality that nuclear energy is not the “clean alternative” they were led to believe.

The author chronicles the events as they occur, and reveals the uniquely Japanese way of remaining optimistic in the face of multiple catastrophes.
