RYOICHI WAGO (1968–) is a poet from Fukushima. In the immediate aftermath of the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown, he started a Twitter feed, sharing his observations and experiences in the form of poetry. They were eventually collected in Shi no tsubute (Pebbles of Poetry), one of the first major literary works to emerge from the 3.11 disasters. Still writing from Fukushima, he has become the major poetic voice of 3.11, writing about its ongoing impact on Japan.
