The 2nd Anniversary of the 3.11 Earthquake


Message from Mr. Takumi Nemoto, Minister for Reconstruction

It is now two years since the Great East Japan Earthquake struck on 11 March 2011, and as such is an appropriate time to reflect on the progress made to date and remind ourselves of the work that remains to be done. As we are all vividly aware, the March 2011 disaster caused unprecedented damage in the Tohoku region and resulted in a period of crisis that impacted the entire nation. Reconstruction and revitalization of the economies, communities and livelihoods impacted by this disaster remains a national priority.
