VIDEO DESCRIPTION:

When Japan's massive tsunami last march swept through the coastal city of Rikuzentakata, in addition to the damage caused to buildings and human life, it also wiped out the town's famous pine forest. There were more than 60,000 pine trees along the coast. Of those, only one survived. For residents such as Seiko Handa it became a symbol of hope where the city itself lost nearly 10% of its population to the wave.
