The Sun Rises on Kumamoto Castle One Year After Devastating Earthquakes (Japan in Photos)

A turret and towers of Kumamoto Castle lay silhouetted against the sunrise on April 14, 2017, one year after a string of earthquakes heavily damaged the historic structure. Communities in Kumamoto and Ōita Prefectures are still working to rebuild after the devastating temblors that destroyed homes and businesses. The overall death toll from the disaster surpassed 200, including indirect causes. (© Jiji)
