Fudai Town Mayor Hiroshi Fukawatari stands at his town hall at Fudai, Iwate Prefecture, northeastern Japan. Fudai has a 51-foot-high flood gate that protected the town when it was hit by the tsunami on March 11. The construction was criticized as a wasteful public works project in the 1970s, but the town is standing. (AP Photo/Hiro Komae)
