Japan has remembered the nearly 20,000 victims of an earthquake and subsequent tsunami and nuclear crisis.

Friday (March 11) marked five years since the nine-magnitude earthquake struck.

At 2.46 pm local time, the moment the earthquake hit, bells rang out in downtown Tokyo and people around the nation bowed their heads in a moment of silence. All the trains on Tokyo’s vast underground paused for a minute.
