Send me a letter


In Japan, there was a place no one can make a nuclear plant because of an old lady.

Her name is Kumagai Asako.

She owned her house and 12,000 m2 of the land, which is only 250m away from the proposed reactor.

She kept fighting against the Japanese power company, J-power, to block the nuclear plant and save the beautiful sea. She knew if she let them build the plant that the sea would be contaminated.

They threatened and tried to corrupt her but she didn’t move.

However, in May 2006, she died suddenly. They said that it was because of a venomous bug.

No one had died because of the bug for 40 years.

After her death, her daughter (Ogasawara Atsuko) and granddaughter took over the house and kept living there – to succeed Asako’s will.

Kumagai Asako, the old lady fighting against nuclear plant

Now J-power is trying to close the road to the house by saying too few people use it.

They have started counting people who use the street.

The house is called Asako house.

Asako’s daughter and granddaughter are asking you to send them letters so that the postman will use the road and then they can not close the street.

This is the message from the family.

If you sympathize, please send them a letter.


Against nuclear energy!!
No more Fukushima!!
Save Japan!!! And your country.
Do you know Asako House?
If you send a letter or a card,
You can stop to build the atomic power plant.
This house was build to stop to construct Oma atomic power plant ofAomori, north of Fukushima.
The house is near Oma genpatsu which is not in operation yet.
The road of photo that is almost blockaded.
The sign on the fence says “Keep out” but actually this road is for Asako House and her fields.
Why this road is watched by some atomic power plant?
We can’t understand.
They want to close the road and to break the house.
This state is serious violation of human rights, and Japanese constitution.
If you send some letter, this road will then be used by the postman and so the atomic power plant can’t shut it.
Pray for Japan, pray for Fukushima,
And now send your thoughts!

Asako House
Aomori Pref.

    Evacuate FUKUSHIMA – 福島の子供を守れ VIDEO The whole international press have blackout the worst catastrophe in modern history. So this is a humble reminder of what really is going on in Fukushima and beyond today ! There is a crime against humanity happening right under our nose and all we can hear is a deafening silence. Please spread this video as much as you can … in the name of humanity ! Thanks !

    PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND FORWARD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. It will take a second … a second the children of Fukushima do not have ——>

    Action needs to be taken!
    Mochizuki, we need to create more awareness of Kumagai Asako’s case, other than sending just letters.

    On January 14-15 2012 there’s a Global Conference for a Nuclear Power Free World in Japan. Anyone willing to go there and talk about this case and ask for help?
    Next, we all have to send emails to Greenpeace and talk about this too and ask for their assistance.
    Send out pamphlets (printed paper) and distribute it among those who are opposing and taking part of the demonstration against the nuclear industries.

    Other than that, send emails/letters to everyone present in the Diet and talk about this problem. Let them know we are knocking on everyone’s (national and international) doors to raise awareness and ask for assistance. We also need to contact their family members (wives, sons, daughters, uncles, etc), their friends and other relatives about this matter too.

    I know our words will fall on deaf ears for most people, but if we all together send just one letter or one email a day or even a week, there’s a chance it will lead to success.

    Come on, people, share your opinion and ideas to take action rather than doing nothing at all.
    There has to be something that we can do.

    I have seen this lady on TV and I really feel for her–
    I read your dairy every day here in Australia.

    I would like to send her a letter but do not read or understand Japanese.

    You are doing a very good job in telling it like it is.

    I thank you

    Best wishes and luck,

      Joyce, it doesn’t matter if the postcard is written in English, the point is to keep the postman busy and the road in use. The old lady will be pleased with a nice Australian landscape, animal, Aborigine art, etc. picture on the postcard.

      P.S. LOVE is an international word.

They talked about her fight,she also has a grown daughter whom comes to visit her !

    Nous faisons des appels de très loin pour venir en aide à tout les malheureux qui subissent des souffrances inimaginables sans avoir le moindre moyen de se défendre! Nous souffrons avec eux et notre inquiétude est sans cesse grandissante! Le seul espoir qu’il nous reste repose sur votre décision humaine à soutenir une volonté politique par laquelle une sortie de crise sera envisageable! Nous savons combien il est compliqué de revenir sur des acquits économiques en période de crise, le souci de la crise humaine demeure plus important, tout simplement car l’humanité est seule garante d’un avenir qui aura la force du renouvellement, l’économie peut détruire cet atout majeur représentant d’un paradis sur terre à conserver pour le bien de l’humanité!

  14. Yazeed ghoul says:

    We call a long way to help all the poor who suffer unimaginable suffering without any means of defense! We suffer with them and our concern is constantly growing! The only hope we have left is your decision to support a human in which a political crisis will be possible! We know how complicated it is to return acknowledgments of economic crisis, concern for the human crisis is still more important, simply because humanity is the only guarantee of a future that will renew the strength of the economy can destroy this major asset representing a heaven on earth to keep it for the good of humanity!
