But a further hundred and fifty thousand are still camping in shelters, struggling to cope with so much loss. Our correspondent Damian Grammaticas went to Rikuzentakata, one of the worst hit towns on Japan’s eastern coast, to speak those mourning loved ones. Satellite imagery courtesy of GeoEye

Japan Recovery – GeoEye Production Services Featured in Article

FILE – This March 12, 2011 file photo provided by GeoEye shows the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex in Okuma, Fukushima Prefecture, a day after an earthquake and tsunami hit Japan’s east coast. Tokyo Electric Power Co., which runs the hobbled Fukushima plant, did not factor geologic evidence of the giant Jogan tsunami of 869 A.D. into its preparedness. When a tsunami hit in March 2011, it unleashed waves up to 42 feet (14 meters) high, swamping the backup generators needed for cooling. The same region was also walloped twice before, once around 140 B.C. and again sometime between 600 B.C. and 900 B.C., scientific studies revealed. (AP Photo/GeoEye, File)
