Residents of Miyake Island pledged Wednesday to rebuild their lives in a ceremony marking the first anniversary since they returned home after volcanic eruptions in September 2000 forced their evacuation.

About 150 people attended the event held at a junior high school on the island, which also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the village of Miyake.
