In this Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 photo, a picture of the Deity of Mercy, left, and calligraphy reading "Departure," are displayed in tsunami survivor Hide Sato's room at a temporary housing complex in Rikuzentakata, Iwate Prefecture, northeastern Japan. Like tens of thousands of other Japanese who lost everything in the tsunami that pulverized much of Japan’s northeastern coast two years ago, Sato is living in one-room temporary housing, and longing for a home of her own.
