With so many huge events occurring around the world lately, it's hard to believe that the devastating 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan happened only two short months ago.
As of today, nearly 15,000 deaths have been confirmed, and more than 10,000 remain listed as missing. In some coastal communities, where the ground has sunk lower than the high tide mark, residents are still adjusting to twice-daily flooding.
Many thousands still reside in temporary shelters because their homes were either destroyed or lie within the exclusion zone around the damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. And now that tourism season has arrived, Japan is finding itself hit by yet another disaster - visits to the country have dropped by 50 percent.
Alan Taylor's In Focus is on the scene, with images from the tsunami-affected areas of Japan that were taken over the past several weeks.
