Those who would want to download free satellite images from Sendai Japan to study the extent of damage from the massive earthquake and tsunami, you may get the images from NASA via Earth Observatory. There are links I provided below.

Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) acquired the top image of the Sendai region on March 12, 2011, at 10:30 a.m. There is another image, taken by Terra MODIS on February 26, 2011, that is provided as a point of reference (before the earthquake and tsunami occurred).

NASA images courtesy the MODIS Rapid Response Team at NASA GSFC.
