Photo Journal: Soothing soak

A resident of Ibaraki, Osaka Prefecture, Kyohei Takahata, 30, and his 2-year-old son, Shun, take a bath at a temporary facility that was set up by the Self-Defense Forces in the city on June 20, 2018, two days after a strong earthquake hit the area. The pair had not been able to bathe since gas supplies to their residence were cut off due to the massive tremor on June 18. A relieved Kyohei, who was concerned that his son had started to scratch his body, said, "I'm so grateful for their help, it's tremendous." (Mainichi)
