Japan one year later: What’s changed?

The massive 9.0 earthquake that struck Japan on March 11, 2011, killed thousands and rattled a nation that’s accustomed to living in a quake zone. It toppled buildings, left many homeless and created nuclear concerns. Japan is still rebuilding one year later, from the buildings to the national psyche.


If you live in Japan, we’d like you to tell us: How has your life changed over the past year? Whether it’s emotional or physical, we’d like to hear how your life is different since the earthquake. We’re looking for how the earthquake changed the way you live on a personal level.


Share your before and after photos of your area, or grab a video camera and let us know what life is like today. The best iReports will be used in coverage on CNN International and on CNN.com.


Update: We used some of your stories in a piece we did for CNN.com: Lost and found: Japan one year later
