The ramen shop's owner is Tate Hideshi ( 舘秀司さん ) of Miyako City, Iwate Prefecture, Japan (岩手県 宮古市). I didn't catch the name of the shop and couldn't connect his name to a shop in a quick search.

I, too, hope someone knows how he can be reached.

CNN - please provide, if possible, contact information for this shop owner. I, too, would like to donate to this man so he can continue to run his shop and provide a warm meal to his fellow community members.

The Japanese people are kind, respectful and patient as evidenced by their demeanor during their most difficult time. You think people would be that way here in similar circumstances? Not a chance.....looting and rioting would be rampant everywhere!

How can I donate to this shop? Thanks CNN for documenting this heartfelt story but there is more you can do!

My first inclination was that you were off-base, thinking of some counter-examples, then the mayhem following Katrina came to mind ... so my take is yes and no.

Seems like this could be a way to bypass the corporate charity machines and get some money directly to where it could help some folks.
