GREENWICH - Ten weeks after an earthquake and tsunami rocked his homeland, a Japanese-American from Greenwich has just returned from Fukushima.

Eiich Kuwana laid the groundwork for a $1 million private relief effort for the area devastated in the wake of the world's first ever nuclear multi-natural disaster.

Kuwana also hopes that photos that he took will inspire people in southwestern Connecticut to reach into their pockets and make a difference.
