March 11, 2013, memorial services were held for the two-year anniversary of 3.11 across northern Japan. Two years after 3.11, some things have changed but many problems remain in disaster areas. Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant that caused an serious accident is still in hazardous condition. People who used to live in No-Go-Zone have not been able to go back to their hometowns. The decontamination plan for a huge contaminated area by radiation is late. Also, home rebuilding efforts are slow. However, in such severe situation, the people do not forget to pray for the victims of 3.11.
