Tohoku is a region in the northeastern part of the island of Honshu, the largest island of the Japanese archipelago and is divided into six prefectures : Aomori , Iwate, Akita, Yamagata , Miyagi and Fukushima .
A devastating earthquake in 2011 destroyed the Tohoku region. Many still have clear memories of the frightening images and video footage thanks to the media that quickly went round the world, and right after that came a wave of sympathy and support for a speedy recovery.
This photo exhibition does not attempt to show injuries or restoration but photographs aims to show the natural and cultural environment of the Tohoku area, as well as its people and their way of life.
