Iwate Governor Takuya Tasso has praised the progress in his prefecture's recovery following the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011.

"People no longer live in temporary housing, city centers have made a comeback, many facilities have been rebuilt and a 'reconstruction road' has been completed," Tasso said, referring to a road running along the Pacific coast in the Sanriku area of the Tohoku region, which was built as a symbol of the area's reconstruction.
