Tsunami Reflections

By Charles A. Pomeroy

Biography & memoir, Current affairs | Paperback, eBook


Tsunami Reflections, a memoir by a retired journalist who lost his home and family members to Japan’s horrific tsunami of March, 2011, sets the scene with geographical and historical background of his retirement town, Otsuchi. The author then recreates a sense of place and local culture before describing the tsunami and its aftermath, loss of family members and home, mass funerals, humanitarian efforts, and town reconstruction plans.



Charles Pomeroy, born Wisconsin in 1930, served in the U.S. Navy (1947-1056) as aircrew with VP-6 during the Korean War flying missions out of Japan. He returned to that country in 1957 as a student. After graduating from Tokyo's Sophia University in 1962, he freelanced as a translator, then as a journalist covered Japan’s healthcare sector until retirement in 2004 to his wife's hometown of Otsuchi on Japan's Sanriku Coast. There, he created woodblock prints until the tsunami of March 11, 2011, that destroyed the town and his home. His latest book, "Tsunami Reflections," provides insights on that disaster. He authored two earlier books, "Traditional Crafts of Japan" (1967) and "Pharma Delegates" (2014). He also served as general editor of “Correspondents in Japan” published by Tuttle (1998).
