The Wider Image: Japan's tsunami survivors call lost loves on the phone of the wind
Kaze-no-Denwa (the phone of the wind), a phone booth set up for people to call their deceased loved ones, stands under a starry sky at Bell Gardia Kujira-yama, ahead of the 10th anniversary of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster, in Otsuchi town, Iwate Prefecture, northern Japan, February 27, 2021. Many survivors say the unconnected phone line helps them keep in touch with their loved ones and gives them some solace as they grapple with their grief.

Itaru Sasaki, 76, who built Kaze-no-Denwa (the phone of the wind), a phone booth for people to call their deceased loved ones, conducts landscaping work at Bell Gardia Kujira-yama, ahead of the 10th anniversary of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster, in Otsuchi town, Iwate Prefecture, northern Japan, February 27, 2021. Sasaki built the phone booth a few months before the disaster, after he lost his cousin to cancer. "There are many people who were not able to say goodbye," he says. "There are families who wish they could have said something at the end, had they known they wouldn't get to speak again," Sasaki said. REUTERS/Issei Kato SEARCH "KATO PHONEBOOTH" FOR THIS STORY.

Kazuyoshi Sasaki, 67, who lost his wife, Miwako, in the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, reacts as he calls his late wife inside Kazo-no-Denwa (the phone of the wind), a phone booth set up for people to call their deceased loved ones, ahead of the 10th anniversary of the disaster, at Bell Gardia Kujira-yama in Otsuchi town, Iwate Prefecture, northern Japan, February 27, 2021. Inside, Sasaki dials his wife's cellphone number. He explains how he searched for her for days. "It all happened in an instant, I can't forget it even now," he says, weeping. "I sent you a message telling you where I was, but you didn't check it. When I came back to the house and looked up at the sky, there were thousands of stars, it was like looking at a jewel box," he added. "I cried and cried and knew then that so many people must have died." REUTERS/Issei Kato SEARCH "KATO PHONEBOOTH" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGE OF THE DAY.

"It all happened in an instant, I can't forget it even now," Sasaki said when he explained how he searched for her for days after the devastating earthquake and tsunami a decade ago, visiting evacuation centres and makeshift morgues, returning at night to the rubble of their home.
