a touching moment

Shoko Ono, the 23-year-old took a $800 taxi ride from Tokyo, completed the last part of her journey to her parents' house on foot. The family dog welcomes her to a home largely undamaged by the earthquake, and a mother stunned by her arrival. There's no hugging or kissing, just gasps of surprise and shock as she stands and bows to her parents. They bow, too -- the emotion of the moment palpable, even though nobody touches anyone
