Yesterday, Google-Asia released street views of the ghost towns of Namie & Fukushima, Japan.  Using one of it's Google Streetview cars, it captured exclusive footage of what the cities look like today; two years after the massive 9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami hit the coastline of Japan back in 2011.

More before and after (2011 vs 2013) images.  This one of hope and recovery.  It's astounding how much recovery progress has been made (in areas not hazardous from nuclear plant fallout).

That link in your second post is amazing.

It's nice to see such hope after such devastation.

indeed.  I can't help to wonder though, the difference between New Orleans and Japan with the clean up.  I haven't been down there, but two years out pictures didn't seem to reflect this big of an effort.  And that puzzles me.
