Edano Yukio

Edano = Family Name

Yukio =Given Name

In the days after the quake on March 11, 2011, Edano Yukio was the man I remembered seeing on the news after the quake, giving press conference style reports of what was going on at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Indeed, he is the man everybody in Japan remembers seeing on their TVs.

At that time, he was Japan’s cabinet minister.

I didn’t really know who he was. I just thought of him as the man in blue.

He was famous in the United States, too, I think, because a search reveals him to be among TIME magazine’s 2011 Candidates for Person of the Year.


Because Edano was the spokesperson on TV after the quake, I will be translating his early newscasts (now on youtube) from March 2011 to find out what Japan was being told/not being told.
