    Up and down the tsunami-ravaged coast, a greater concern may be manpower.

    Time to recruit farmers from other countries - Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Peru ... I'm sure there would be lots of takers, despite all the challenges. Also time to increase plot sizes and make it more efficient. Although things may look dire, perhaps this could have a silver lining for Japan, as long as it doesn't try and cling to an unviable past.

    All is not totally lost. I believe contract workers can be arranged for with countries such as Bangladesh, Myanmar, Indonesia, China, India, Cambodia, etc. If this can work successfully now in can Asian country, I don't see why it can't work out in Japan, unless "as the crow flies" above said, Japan doesn't try and cling to an unviable past.
