I can’t wade through the 344+ posts to TokyoPlayer’s thread, but could use some advice.
My wife, after two days, finally was able to get through to her sister and family in Tokyo. The are all right and their house is undamaged, but she is panicking about the nuclear plant problem.
From what I hear so far, even if the worst happens, it being some 170 miles distant, Tokyo should not be in any danger. But who knows?
She is so upset they have loaded down the car and were about ready to flee the city. I think my wife talked them into waiting, as we expect the streets out of the city will be a problem, as well as the roads south. I read today that some reporters who left found all gas stations shut down as well as stores being out of food and water.
Her first impulse is to get down to Kyoto where another sister lives, but that would be, I suspect, and arduous trip.
What is your take on this? Should she sit tight and live in a state of perpetual panic (it is genetic, as my wife is a champion worrier too), or would it be wise to head for Kyoto or Osaka?
We told them if they were that worried, to get somewhere where the airports are working and come to our home in Phoenix.
