"It was tough enough to live in the refuge. And now it's not easy staying upstairs." The expression of the neighbor lady portrayed both the bliss and hardness of living in her own house. There were a lot of people who spent hard days without any utilities after the Great East Japan Earthquake. However, a few people recognized what it was like. I spread out our case on reflection as an example of an ordinary household; how we had gone through without enough commodities in the bitter winter, how we had scraped up our daily necessities. What are the most important, and yet forgettable things in devastated times I hope these things that I incorporated in here save people from their suffering in case of emergency."
