The Great East Japan Earthquake changed Japan forever. The subsequent tsunami and nuclear plant disaster shocked the world and devastated large swaths of the Japanese countryside. While truly saddening and catastrophic for those who lived through it, nine years later the affected areas continue to persevere and recover. Their determination and effort are not only inspiring but also provide a unique glimpse at how communities can be built and also rebuilt with sustainable goals in mind. According to Dr Fumihiko Saito, a professor at the Faculty of International Studies at Ryukoku University, the rebuilding process is way ahead of academic theories and offers a lot of insight for the research community. Saito, who has worked on international development, local renewal efforts and sustainability, is now visiting the areas affected by the earthquake to conduct interviews and questionnaires in an effort to understand and learn from the people there.
