Five years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred and we are in our sixth year to further the initiatives for the reconstruction of disaster-affected areas. How have the disaster-affected areas changed and how much of the reconstruction has been completed? The number of earthquake evacuees throughout the country is 174,000. 49% of the construction of disaster recovery public housing units has been completed and 73 - 74% of farm fields and fishing ports have been restored (as of February 29, 2016, according to the Reconstruction Agency). Although various figures tell us the progress of the reconstruction, evacuees living away from their hometowns each have different thoughts.
