New public housing in the Nango District of Kesennuma on February 9, 2016, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Kesennuma was one of the worst hit places by the tsunami and earthquake of March 2011 with many buildings being destroyed and over 1000 residents losing their lives. This 3 block Nango Residence was completed in 2015 and now permanently houses some 150 families. The development is built on a piece of land that used to be a school but was destroyed by the tsunami. There are certainly positive signs of rebuilding in the area but some 2,000 out of 2,351 prefab temporary homes in Kesennuma will remain occupied after the 5 year anniversary.
