March 11, 2012 marks the first anniversary of three historic catastrophes that hit Japan, particularly the Tohoku region – a magnitude 9.0 earthquake, a massive tsunami and a meltdown of nuclear reactors in Fukushima. 

15,850 people died…

6,011 were wounded…

3,287 still missing…

Towns were washed out to sea…

Homes, buildings, infrastructures were severely damaged…

But the Japanese people didn’t lose hope. In fact, they faced the tragedy head on, and showed the world the true meaning of love, courage and discipline.

Japan is rising again.
