View the large set of full sized pictures at The Frame
The Frame, the Sacramento Bee's photo section, has an article Japan marks 6 months since earthquake, tsunami that shows a large number of photographs, taken from the same angle, showing the damage immediately after the earthquake/tsunami struck, 3 months later and 6 months later (the above sample only shows the immediate aftermath and 6 months later). 

It is a remarkable set of photographs and a sobering reminder of the scale of damage Japan experienced and the size of the cleanup they've done in the last half of year. It is heartening to see the progress they've made.
