The Reconstruction Agency - the 'Control Tower'

The Reconstruction Agency, established in February 2012, is the principal agency of the Government of Japan tasked with the reconstruction process following the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011, which precipitated the triple disaster of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident.


The Agency‘s main role is to accelerate structural reconstruction and revitalization in the affected areas in Tohoku region, by supporting implementation of government policies and managing coordination of reconstruction strategy and initiatives between various branches of government at a national level and with local municipalities.

The Agency, headed by Minister for Reconstruction, acts as the ‘Control Tower’ for all reconstruction efforts, including coordination of reconstruction activities and cooperation with local governments.
The agency was established directly under the Cabinet to centrally administer reconstruction activities, expected to exist for no more than 10 years. Based on new Basic Guidelines for Reconstruction in Response to the Great East Japan Earthquake after the “Reconstruction and Revitalization Period”, released as the Cabinet Decision on December 20, 2019, the Agency is expected to continue for another ten years (until FY 2030)
