Kamaishi Bay in Iwate Prefecture is seen on the 10th anniversary of the March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, on March 11, 2021. At the bay's mouth was the world's deepest seawall; though assumed to be an effective deterrent, it was destroyed in the disaster. A tsunami wave measuring around 10 meters high reached the center of the city, and more than 1,000 people were killed or went missing. (Mainichi/Kota Yoshida)
