Japan Earthquake

A boy appears to be entranced by a candle at a shelter in Ofunato, Japan. A magnitude 7.1 aftershock late Thursday hit the same area in northeastern Japan ravaged by disaster a month ago, prompting a tsunami alert, which was later canceled; and oceans away, Japanese cherry blossoms are in full bloom in Potsdam, Germany.

Lessons Learned

More than 40% of Japan’s coast is lined with breakwaters, sea walls and other structures, but many were overrun or collapsed. Was building them a waste of money better spent on early-warning systems, more effective preparedness and more resilient construction?

Business Matters

The effects of the disaster were felt not only by Japanese businesses, but by the entire global economy. Cuts in the supply chain affected auto and technology companies worldwide. The nuclear power industry now faces an uncertain future.

Bathing ritual
Residents bathe amid tsunami devastation in Kesennuma city, Miyagi prefecture. Japan’s seismologists were so entrenched in outdated beliefs about seismic hazard that they were blinded to the risk of the March 11 mega-quake, a commentary in a top science journal charged.

Hang in there
Tsunami survivor Tadao Kamei (from left) and a friend draw the words “Ganbaro!” or “hang in there” on a new billboard lit up with car headlights in Ishinomaki, Miyagi prefecture Sunday. Prime Minister Naoto Kan promised he would never abandon survivors of Japan’s tsunami as he tried to focus attention on the future, despite a high-stakes battle at a nuclear plant. His friend decided to make the billboard from recycle materials on his vacant lot.

With the toll topping 10,000 confirmed dead the March 11 quake has become Japan’s deadliest natural disaster since the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake, which killed more than 142,000 people. Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced from their homes and have taken shelter in emergency facilities.

Royal support
Japan’s Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko speak with evacuees from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, at Tokyo Budoh-kan, currently an evacuation shelter, in Tokyo. The Emperor and Empress visited the shelter on Wednesday to offer encouragement to some 300 evacuees, mainly from Fukushima Prefecture. Japan’s trade ministry ordered nuclear power plant operators to immediately start implementing new safety measures on Wednesday in light of the crisis at the Fukushima plant.

Japanese military search a collapsed building for bodies in Kensennuma, Japan. Local municipalities are forced to dig mass graves as a temporary solution. More than two weeks after the magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami struck Japan the death toll has risen to over 10,418 dead with still thousands missing and the expectation is that it will end up well over 20,000. Presently the country is still struggling to repair a damaged nuclear power plant that has caused tremendous problems, evacuations, and now tainted water supply in the Tokyo area causing more panic buying of bottled water.


Evacuation center

Tokiko Abe shovels dirt over the coffin of her husband, who died in the tsunami, at a temporary mass grave site for the victims of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Higashi Matsushima, northern Japan. 24 bodies were buried temporarily and more are expected due to the lack of facilities to cremate bodies in the city. The site will be excavated to accommodate around 1,000 bodies in total.

Temporary burial

(Toshifuni Kitamura, Getty Images / March 23, 2011)

The coffins of tsunami-earthquake victims lie in front of an excavator during a mass burial at a cemetery in Onagawa, Miyagi prefecture. A total of 60 tsunami victims were buried at the temporary cemetery from March 22. The Japanese usually cremate remains. But local governments say a lack of fuel — which is desperately needed by homeless survivors for heat and transport — make burial a more sensible option in the short term.


Tragedy and escape remembered

(Brian van der Brug, Tribune Newspapers / March 19, 2011)

Chiya Yamane. 84, recounts the afternoon the tsunami warning sounded in her Miyako neighborhood in Japan. She headed out of her house toward higher ground, but got tired. A fireman carried her to safety on his back.

Babies and radiation

(Kyodo News / March 24, 2011)

A baby undergoes a check for radiation in Fukushima City, northeastern Japan. Tokyo residents were warned not to give babies tap water because of radiation leaking from a nuclear plant crippled in the earthquake and tsunami that devastated northeast Japan in the world’s costliest natural disaster.


Food lines

Evacuees queue up to receive curry with rice from volunteers from Hokkaido at a shelter in Yamada town in Iwate prefecture. The number of people confirmed dead or listed as missing in Japan rose above 26,000, nearly two weeks after a massive earthquake and tsunami struck the country’s northeast coast. There are fears of a much higher toll from the disaster, which flattened entire towns along the Pacific coast of northern Honshu island.

Safe water

(Toru Hanai, Reuters / March 24, 2011)

City workers move part of a shipment of 240,000 bottles of water to be distributed to government offices around Tokyo as part of an emergency program to supply infants with uncontaminated water in Tokyo. Stores in Tokyo were running out of bottled water on Thursday after radiation from a damaged nuclear complex briefly made tap water unsafe for babies.


Cremation ceremony

Family members and relatives transfer the bones of Masaichi Oyama, who was killed by the tsunami, by chopsticks into an urn the during a cremation ceremony in Kurihara , Japan. The family lost three family members from the earthquake and tsunami. Under Japanese Buddhist practice, a cremation is the expected traditional way of dealing with the dead, but now with the death toll so high, crematoriums are overwhelmed and there is a shortage of fuel to burn them.


Town of Yamada

More dangerous than thought

(Kyodo News / March 25, 2011)

Police who have finished checking Minamisoma City for radiation are screened for radiation contamination in Kawamata, Fukushima prefecture in northeastern Japan. Japan said on Friday workers who suffered burns while trying to cool a crippled reactor were exposed to radiation levels 10,000 times higher than expected, adding evidence that the crucial containment vessel for nuclear fuel had been ruptured.


Identifying family

Relatives of the dead place flowers on the body as they identify their family members at a temporary burial ground in Higashi Matsushima, Japan. Under Japanese Buddhist practice a cremation is the expected traditional way of dealing with the dead, but with the death toll so high, crematoriums are overwhelmed and there is a shortage of fuel for cremation. Local municipalities are forced to dig mass graves as a temporary solution. Two weeks after the magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami struck Japan the death toll has risen to 10,000 dead with thousands missing and the expectation is that it will end up well over 20,000. Presently the country is still struggling to repair a damaged nuclear power plant where a breach has been reported.

Two weeks after a giant quake struck and sent a massive tsunami crashing into the Pacific coast, the death toll from Japan’s worst post-war disaster topped 10,000 and there was scant hope for 17,500 others still missing.


Prayers for the dead

Local regulations often prohibit burial of bodies.
