Two weeks after a devastating earthquake and tsunami that obliterated towns on Japan's northeast coast, survivors tried to find sense of normalcy in lives that have been ripped apart. Shelters receive regular food deliveries and visits by medical professionals while an evacuee centre set up in the Buddhist Sekiozenji temple off a main street in Kamaishi is empty during the day as people leave to visit relief offices or try to fix what is left of damaged homes.
