They knew who she was (the media), right? It would seem odd for them  
to be harassing her for the hell of it, no? For them to take pics and  
ask her questions, unless they were doing that for everyone there,  
it's a bit odd (unless they had an idea on who she was).

Maybe, maybe not. I mean, I think they were already asking her  
questions before she asked them to stop taking pics and vids? Then  
again, media is media, regardless of where one is in the world. It's  
hard to judge the situation without having seen it.

Hyogo is pretty far away from the earthquake, though, isn't it? It  
would have been difficult to feel and realize that it was an  
earthquake. I can imagine what it's like in that area; my thoughts go  
out to the people that have been affected tragically by the earthquake.
