What’s Up? Survivor tales of the 2011 Japan earthquake and subsequent tsunami and Fukushima disaster @ Asia Society,
With a collaboration with The Japan Society, A, a panel of survivors from both the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack in New York and March 11, 2011 earthquake in Japan will discuss common parallels between both tragedies.
Why you should go. It seems a very poignant discussion about commonalities from two very different tragedies, but it is definitely worth checking out. Not surprisingly, this is the more somber of several Japan-related events at the Asia Society this year, which range from classic Samurai films to sculpture exhibits.
If you’ve never been to Asia Society, you must check out its impressive, modern building. The gift shop with its amazing collection of literature and travel books. and is also worth a gander.
