Buddhist monks, Japan Self-Defense Force personnel, firefighters, and other relief workers observed a moment of silence on “Hiyori Yama,” or Weather Hill, in Natori, Miyagi prefecture, on April 11, 2011, exactly one month after the devastating earthquake and tsunami hit northeastern Japan. Local fishermen used to climb the manmade hump and decide whether it was safe to fish. (Koichi Nakamura,Yomiuri Shimbun/Associated Press)
