Toronto - Today at The Sakura Room of the Consulate-General of Japan in Toronto a special preview was hosted for a photo exhibit that commemorates a year of tragedy, hope and recovery after the devastating earthquake on March 11, 2011 in Japan.
There are still 4,500 people missing almost a year after a powerful earthquake hit Japan on March 11, 2011. The following tsunami washed countless out to sea where they have yet to be found. More than 15,700 perished on that day.
The Japanese people have come back, with hope and friendships with other nations recovering from the disaster.
Within 50 days the trains that were twisted as the earth shook were back in working order.
Schoolchild clutching new school packs returned to school quickly with hope in their eyes.
The relief effort by International Aid agencies helped Japan speed to recovery, including a massive effort from Canada.
