Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami Anniversary0

One year later and Japan is far from dug out the destruction, but the prime minister did say that he is committed to rebuilding and in re-energizing the nation in the process.

“A lot of Japanese are very optimistic, so don’t worry about (us) too much,” said one Japanese citizen
