New English-language News Site from Asahi Shimbun

The Asahi Shimbun has launched a new English-language website on the March 11th disaster. The site is a clearinghouse for Asahi’s coverage of the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis.

A message from Toshio Jo, managing editor for the International Division of the Asahi Shimbun read (in part): “This technically sophisticated site features…interactive maps and graphics. Every aspect of the Great East Japan Earthquake and its aftermath are covered in depth in six subsections: Fukushima nuclear crisis; Quake and Tsunami; Life and Death; Analysis; Recovery and Opinion.”
