Report from Tohoku: Six Months on
At a lecture to the Japan Society on 11 October 2011, Christopher and Phillida Purvis reported on their visit to the Tohoku region six months after the earthquake and tsunami.
During this trip, they visited towns and villages in all three prefectures and spoke with many of those who were involved in recovery projects. For part of the visit they were joined by the British Ambassador, David Warren and Pamela Warren, seen above in Kamaishi on the foundation stone of a devastated house.
