At 9:30 PM, emergency food and water supplies are finally starting to reach some areas hit by a series of heavy earthquakes in Niigata prefecture. However, a large number of people are still without water, and food. There is also great need of lavatories, power generators, mattresses and fuel for the generators.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
