On March 11th, 2011, Japan experienced one of the most powerful earthquakes in recorded history. In the days following the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami that devastated the Tohoku Region, the world was shocked by the images of destruction that flooded the media. In the wake of such unparalleled tragedy, people everywhere were amazed, inspired and humbled by the incredible strength, resilience, and integrity demonstrated by the Japanese people.
As we approach the one year anniversary of that fateful day, Tohoku Today: Rebuilding for a Better Tomorrow documents the steady pace of progress and recovery that has taken place in even the hardest-hit areas. Relying upon the nation’s long tradition of hard work, dedication, and innovation, along with the generous support and encouragement from its friends around the world, Japan is moving forward in a spirit of rebirth and revival.
