On March 11, 2011, Yasuo Takamatsu lost his wife Yuko to the tsunami. Almost three years later, he remains determined to find her, getting his diving license and planning to scour the Tohoku seaboard for her remains.
“I will find my wife on my own power. I will bring her home,” says Takamatsu, 57, from the nearby town of Onagawa.
