Overview

On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake and tidal wave devastated the coast of north eastern Japan, also triggering the worst nuclear catastrophe since Chernobyl. The city of Sendai, in Tohoku, was at the epicenter of the disaster, with thousands of its citizens washed away by the awful tsunami. Our narrative follows four days in March of 2016, on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the disaster. By this time, Japan has created a new vision of its future, with Sendai piloting changes that will form the foundations for an All Electric Japan by 2030. Visions are being turning into realities in Sendai, with safe sources of Energy powering zero emission vehicles on the roads, a reshaped fishing fleet on the seas and a society that is productively nurturing both extremes of a rapidly aging society. Nuclear energy has been tamed, and a new economic order is being trialed. Three visitors are caught in the wave of change sweeping Sendai, whose backwash holds memories of a shattered Friday afternoon five years earlier. With tragedy still whispering from the wings of a world brutally turned upside down, secret pacts, scandals and personal obsessions combine to draw the visitors deep into the currents of change and roiling emotions that are reshaping the future. The eyes of the World turn once more to Sendai, having witnessed the despair of disaster, to recognize the dawning reality of sustainable new beginnings.

Meet the Author

The author is an American who has spent over 80% of his life outside of the United States. Born and raised in Istanbul, he comes from the mixed parentage of an English mother and an American father. Both were working in Intelligence, happily for the same side, when they met. Educated from high school onward in Missouri, New Hampshire and Arizona, the author chose a career in international advertising, which took him to Chicago, New York, London, Melbourne, Auckland, Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo, where he and his fellow Thunderbird graduate raised a daughter and two sons. He considers raising and educating the next generation of interesting people his most important obligation, and is both thankful and pleased with results to date. As a senior executive carrying on the legacy of the real Mad Men, the author is part of the constantly changing communications landscape that surrounds us, with the opening of the ‘digital highway’ paving the way to extraordinary new connections with individuals. In a nutshell, he believes content is still king. Always a voracious reader and having grown up without television in Turkey, the author draws from the icons of two cultures to write under the name Ernest Manjiro. Nahama 'John' Manjiro was blown over the horizon as a fourteen year old fisherman in 1841, only to return to open the isolated realm of Japan to the West. And Ernest, well, he blew us all over the horizon. Return to Sendai was written during the summer of 2011, in the aftermath of the terrible tragedy that devastated the coast of Tohoku on March 11.
