We check back in with Jonathan Levine-Ogura, an American living with his wife and kids in the northern Japanese town of Hanamaki.

He tells us that people living in shelters need things like shoes and schoolbags for the school year that starts back up next week.  Levine-Ogura also says that rural Japanese fear that the thousands of people still missing after the earthquake and tsunami will become "lost souls" and haunt them. Jonathan Levine-Ogura writes the blog Into Iwate.
