The Wider Image: Japan's tsunami survivors call lost loves on the phone of the wind
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. A few months ago, Sasaki says he was approached by organisers who want to set up similar phones in Britain and Poland that would allow people to call relatives they had lost in the coronavirus pandemic. "Just like a disaster, the pandemic came suddenly and when a death is sudden, the grief a family experiences is also much larger," he said. REUTERS/Issei Kato SEARCH "KATO PHONEBOOTH" FOR THIS STORY.
