One year has passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake that caused unprecedented damage and many deaths on the Pacific coast of the Tohoku region on March 11, 2011.
It has been a very long year for the people of Tohoku who have been looking at the changing landscape of their hometown, thinking of the dead, feeling sad and angerless.
Sendai Airport, which was damaged by the tsunami, started a temporary flight while the passenger terminal was unavailable, and at the end of 2011, all functions were finally fully restored.
