無私の犠牲 Selfless Sacrifice - The Fukushima 50

Throughout history during times of great crisis and tragedy, countless brave souls have time and time again put their lives out on the line to save others. As the nuclear crisis at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant continues to unfold 50 brave men of unquestionable courage and valor have stepped up to defy the odds to protect all that is dear. We at American Mishima ask our readers to please pray for the Fukushima 50. These brave men who have voluntarily stayed behind at the crippled nuclear power plant in the most desperate of circumstances literally sacrificing their lives to save their country from further nuclear radiation contamination. Like the brave men at Chernobyl who fought to the bitter end to contain the deadly radiation, these brave men at Fukushima know the road that lies ahead of them and know if not them then who would have to take their place. These brave men represent the finest of Japanese traditions and are Japan's last line of defense. For lack of a better comparison we dare say they likely will be remembered and revered as "This Generations 47 Ronin." We at American Mishima look to you with awe and humbly bow to you for your selfless sacrifice and unequivocal courage in this most unprecidented catastrophe.

To those brave men we say がんばって ください!
 Our hearts and prayers are with you.
ども ありがとう ございまして!


  1. Those TEPCO workers at Fukushima nuclear power plant are the true, true heroes of this tragedy. They are risking their very lives and some have already given their lives.
