There was a tourist on the bus named bob visiting Japan for a few days who don’t know Japanese and was from America. He still don’t know what is going on and why everyone is screaming so he tapped Tadashi and said “what is going on why is everyone screaming’’ unfortunately, Tadashi only can speak Japanese and not English so, he did not understand bob clearly so Tadashi pulled out his phone and went on Google translate to translate what the bob was trying to say the bob typed what he was trying to say, then he gave the phone back to Tadashi and Tadashi responded back to bob, he freaked out when he received the translation. One other passenger on board calmed Bob. Tadashi was almost there when suddenly, the water came from the north and hit the bus and Tadashi quickly turned the wheel so he would turn to the west Tadashi changed his plan because he wanted to go to north Tokyo but then the water hit the bus which made him go to the west exit instead of the north exit. After a while, there was a big traffic.

Tadashi was waiting for a long time, he looked for what was happening. When Tadashi got down from his bus he looks to see what happened, it was a woman named Aiko who got hurt and her arm was cut really badly, luckily Tadashi was very prepared for a situation like this to happen like this Tadashi went to get medkit to help Aiko. Aiko appreciated Tadashi for helping her, Tadashi asked where she was going she said to the west because to meet her family and tsunami is coming this way, Tadashi was kind to ask if she wanted a ride to the west of Tokyo because he’s dropping his passengers there.
