A shoes lies next to a copy of a national newspaper reporting on the magnitude 8.8 earthquake that shook northeastern Japan at a refuge shelter in Iwaki City, northeastern Japan on 12 March, 2011. Around 300 people, many affected by an explosion at a nearby nuclear plant, others by Japan's biggest ever temblor took shelter at the ad hoc shelter set up inside a local gymnasium about 30 km from the nuclear accident.
