    Much of eastern Japan remains in ruins. Thousands are still trying to rebuild their lives.
    This Thursday some may find it especially hard - because it's Children's Day in Japan.
    Al Jazeera's Divya Gopalan visits the Chiba family in Kesennuma, one of the towns that suffered the most devastation. Kesennuma was a busy fishing port turned into rubble.
    The town was devastated in minutes. For Kiyohide Chiba and his ten-year-old son, everything changed that day.
