A Japanese town rebuilds

A Japanese town struggles to clean up, after the tsunami washed away homes and livelihoods.

    With a damage bill estimated at up to $308 billion, the disaster in Japan is likely to become the costliest in history.

    Many Japanese are now facing the enormous task of cleaning up.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas visited the town of Hachinohe, on the country's east coast, to see how residents were coping, still bereft of government aid that has gone to areas worse hit by the March 11 tsunami and earthquake.
