There’s so much sadness going on in mainland Japan. My thoughts and prayers are with those in Japan affected by the earthquake & tsunami… Last night while waiting on the tsunami that our Base had forecast, I started searching for handcrafts made in Japan to support there business (- listings above are all made in Japan -).

As you may know, my husband and I live in Okinawa, Japan, but we where not effected at all. People below sea-level had to be  evacuated, luckily we live above sea-level! I am so devastated, can’t belief this really happened… –Betty

  1. Hi, Betty

    Thank you for your thought and supports.

    We are OK in Akita but our next-prefectures, Iwate and Miyagi have got huge damaged by Tunami. It is catastrophic. Over 1000 people were killed, or more.
    No houses, people and towns…

    We still have aftershocks often also we are scared atomic pile accident.

    Last night, we had a dark night by electric power failure but now it was recovered. I can use internet and watch TV to check news.

    All transports are stopped or delayed. So I can not do my business as usual for a while. I will try making stocks or new items during this time.

    Again, thank you for your message.
    I hope we don’t have any more damaged and people get over such difficult situation soon.

    Kind regards,


    1. Thank you so much Naomi for letting us know that you are ok.
      Naomi’s item is the pretty Frame Pouch in the middle.

      warm wishes,

  2. Thank you for your thoughtful gesture, Betty.

    Though the tremors were fairly strong here, we’re fine here in Saitama. For a while, the aftershocks were so frequent I couldn’t tell if it was my home shaking from the aftershocks or if it was just my own nervous shaking… I often mistook one for the other. Things have settled down here now, but there’s so much devastation in the harder hit areas of the country… It was such a frightening thing!
