Post Earthquake Tokyo

I know it's 2 months after the fact, but I find these pictures a fascinating record of what Tokyo was like after the earthquake.
This is Takeshita Street in Harajuku on any given day.

Here is Takeshita Street 5 days after the earthquake.

The shelves of the 7-11 near our house were empty for days following the earthquake.

No fresh food on the shelves and definitely no bottled water.
