Japan Tsunami Anniversary: Photos Capture Heartbreak After Tsunami (PHOTOS)

In the last 12 months, some progress has been made in rebuilding lives, but much remains unfinished. Associated Press photographer David Guttenfelder, who chronicled the devastated towns in the aftermath of the disaster, has revisited these communities to see what has changed — and what hasn't.
