Tokyo is slowly returning to normal but scars still remain , after the devastating earthquake AND tsunami and NOW this potential nuclear crisis. Traffic Services, remain disrupted and electricity blackouts are a regular occurrence.

Rush hour in Tokyo on Monday morning.

Many people staying away from the downtown area as Japan battles its biggest crisis since the second world war.

Those who came to work watching careful to monitor what is going on.

Elsewhere people were collecting money for the victims of the Tsunami outside Shinjuku station…aid and essential supplies are now getting to the Victims.

And life is slowly getting back to normal.

Some shoppers showing a stoical attitude as they headed back onto the streets.

And some transportation services back on track, although many of the rail services to the North East will take much longer before they’re restored.

Services have also been delayed so that vital electricity can be saved as the national grid tries to compensate for the loss of Fukushima’s generators.

Electricity blackouts that had been expected on Monday morning were delayed…a temporary reprieve for the neon lights of Shibuya.

But from tonight a rolling blackout will be enforced, as the power is cut for three hours at a time in the areas surrounding the capital.

And for residents, still a looming fear if the reactors at Fukushima melt down.

Resident, Tokyo, said, "I feel really bad about the situation in Fukushima, and I think the government should help the victims and be much more careful in the future."

Resident, Tokyo, said, "The government is doing everything they can, taking precautions, but I think the local people should escape while they still can."
