I set up a member map for our users to make their mark on the world. Please feel free to mark yourself.

[www.zeemaps.com]

  1. Go to the "Additions" section in the top left of the screen.
  2. Select 'Add Marker - Simple'
  3. Fill in your info, as much or as little as you want. You can put an actual street address, or just a zip code. If you want to use a detailed marker, you can even put in Lat/Long coordinates.

Maybe the mods could make this a sticky for a few days?

We've done these maps a few times, and the companies supporting the maps come and go. Hopefully this one will be around longer.

Yes, but I can add others as admins. If someone sends me a list of the mod emails I can add them, or if anyone wants to volunteer...I haven't added any other admins yet, but I think that it requires that you create an actual account on the site.

Hi Gene. Yes, I've lived in Nishinomiya for 24 years. (In the US for a brief holiday at the moment.) As you know, it's a suburb of Osaka or Kobe, depending on how you view it. Canadian Academy is still here. The student populations of the international schools have changed quite a bit, as there are far fewer western expat families these days. For example, Proctor and Gamble moved their Asian headquarters from Kobe to Singapore a few years ago. Also, several of the oil companies and others don't provide the nice expat packages of days gone by. Those schools now compete for Asian students, mainly non-Japanese, from families aiming to get their children into a western university or living in Japan because of work reasons.

Drew,

No kidding! We are in the Shukugawa/Kurakuen area. At the time of the earthquake we were in a house on the mountain (well, hill) behind Kurakuen, which has a solid base of rock. Everything (even the refrigerator with the door open first) fell down and it was a mess. However, no major structural damage and no one in our family was hurt. On the other hand, about 2000 people died within about a 5 km radius (Nishinomiya, Ashiya, Higashi Nada-ku) of our place. Lots of crazy stories from that experience.

Where were you?

I was in Chiba when Hanshin quake hit. I got permission from government to drive down with a van load of goods, and water. Wow, Kobe looked like a war zone the night I arrived. Stayed at a friend's apartment that was okay, but no electricity. People needed water more than anything those first few days. Same in Tohoku... for water, that is.

We had 2 other families move in with us temporarily because their homes were damaged. One of the women was 3 days overdue with her second child. No clinics open, traffic absolutely at a standstill, no hospital would take her because of caring for the wounded. We finally showed up at Ashiya City Hospital, which was running on emergency generators, and demanded that they admit her, which they finally did. A Seattle news station heard the story and showed up a few days later for the story. They couldn't get around, so we fed them dinner and were able to drive them to the hospital.

The only water available was sent in big relief trucks. You could only get a couple of liters per time and the lines were horrendous. Above our house was mountainous, so I thought about finding a stream to collect water. While driving around a neighborhood I found water on the road. I wouldn't think twice about it in normal times. Followed it to the source and found a house with a hose hanging over the front gate. Come to find out they were connected to an underground well, not city water. A sign on the gate said to ring the doorbell and they would turn on the water. Another guy and I would go up there at least once a day to fill coolers and a garbage can full of water, and then haul it to our house and other friends' who couldn't get out. Water is extremely heavy! Half the day was spend obtaining water for 3 families.

I could go on and on. smiling smiley

We were about a mile from the Muko river near the Naruo Hanshin station. My wife was teaching English at Mukogawa Women's University. We were in a modern building that had no damage, just a huge mess in the kitchen and all the furniture had hopped to one side of our apartment. An old wooden apartment building across the street fell down flat, killing two people. No water for weeks, but we had electricity. Quite the experience, yes.

Amazing. I used to teach part time at Mukogawa and have known several teachers there over the years including current, and those who have come and gone from Spokane. Small world!

Orangutans have super long arms. You'll need this to compensate:
