Japanese farmers


Rice farmer Kikuo Endo looks out what used to be his rice fields in Natori, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that devastated the country's northeastern coast. Endo points to a shed full of ruined farm equipment, which he estimates was worth 10 million yen ($125,000). He doesn't know if insurance will cover it. "People shouldn't give up, but I don't think I will farm again," he says. "It's time to pass the baton to the next generation." (AP Photo/Mark Baker)
