In this Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 photo, a disaster control center, right, is seen in an area devastated by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, in Minamisanriku, Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan. Japan's progress so far in rebuilding from the wall of water that thundered over coastal sea walls, sweeping entire communities away and killing more than 19,000 people, is mainly measured in barren foundations and empty spaces. Clearing of forests on higher ground due to be leveled to make space for relocating survivors has barely begun. (AP Photo/Junji Kurokawa)
