Only in Japan | Miraculous Reconstruction

Dear Reader,

This email is from Yuki, a cool woman who represents this cool hotel in Japan.

The top photo was taken on March 11, 2011, right after the M9.0 earthquake.
This is near an exit ramp of Joban Expressway, the artery highway between Tokyo and Sendai, Miyagi, where the tsunami hit hard.

The next photo is the same spot on March 17, 2011.

Realizing this road was the key to the rescue and aid to the affected area, they FIXED IT IN 6 DAYS!!!
According to Sankei News, local contractors donated gravels and people in the neighborhood offered their yard for working space to hasten the reconstruction.
Amazing, isn’t it?!
