Yesterday marked the third anniversary of the March 11, 2011 triple disasters that ravaged the northeast coast of Japan. As always, my thoughts are with the families still grieving the loss of loved ones, and those who struggle to find normalcy in a forever changed landscape overcome by nuclear disaster and uncertainty. I’m in the process of writing a story about a Chicago photographer and sociologist who recently toured a town near the Daiichi Nuclear Plant in Fukushima and will share that soon. In the meantime, below are some links of interest regarding the current state of Tohoku and its ongoing recovery.
