It’s been a tough week for natural disasters in Japan. The northern island of Hokkaido was struck by a powerful earthquake yesterday. Earlier in the week, the southern and western parts of the country were slammed by the strongest typhoon to hit the country in 25 years. That storm killed at least 11 people and the recovery will take some time.
