Japan earthquake: PM visits tsunami hit areas
Japanese PM Naoto Kan has visited the area of north-eastern Japan worst affected by last month's tsunami.
Saturday's visit was Mr Kan's first ground visit to the disaster zone, although he had flown over tsunami-hit areas the day after the earthquake.
The BBC's Rachel Harvey said Mr Kan assured people affected by the disaster in Rikuzentakata that the Japanese government would do all it could to help them.
