Going nowhere

A man looks at the stern of a fishing boat washed ashore during the March 11, 2011 tsunami, in Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture. The boat has remained there since the disaster, awaiting its destiny if it will be scrapped or preserved as an icon of the tragedy.

    Things like these are a reminder that there is still much work to get done and still those suffering as a result of that fateful day.

    @Iwandabaka-san it is powerful video. I hope more people would see your video and realize there is a lot more done in tohoku apart from the tepco blunders. I don't know about that one city in particular but so much has been rebuilt, it is amazing!

    'Going nowhere' could be used to describe the rebuilding efforts in general. Yeah, it's a big job, but the government seems to have other priorities like, using the relief funds to protect their whaling fleet, spend huge amounts of money on other public works projects to big-note the new PM and generally focus on every other little issue to keep the public busy and stop them thinking about the lack of progress in rebuilding north-east Japan.
