In this Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 photo, Futoshi Toba, Mayor of Rikuzentakata, a city devastated by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, speaks during an interview at his office in Rikuzentakata, Iwate Prefecture, northeastern Japan. Toba, who lost his wife Kumi in the tsunami, is among many who believe reconstruction has been hobbled by Japan's incapacity to shift gears and adapt quickly enough to changes brought on by the tsunami - just as it is struggling to revive its fast aging, post-industrial economy.
