The tragedy of Ishinomaki has been repeated across the shoreline, where communities are still trying to rebuild, mourning lost lives and worried about the future, as the younger generation leaves in droves.
Thousands of people are still living in temporary housing and many are dependent on aid for food and clothing.
William wanted to know what the journalists had done, what the rescue operations was like, as well as the personal background of Hiroyuki Takeuchi, a journalist at the Ishinomaki Hibi newspaper.
Akemi Solloway, founder of the London-based Aid for Japan, which supports tsunami orphans, said William's visit will not only provide a morale boost for the residents, but also reassurance that their plight has not been forgotten and renewed international awareness of their daily struggles.
At a humble shopping area that sold local goods by storekeepers trying to turn their lives around, he rang a bell that survived the tsunami, called the "Chime of Hope."

Police said he was behind the wheel of a souped-up Mustang that veered out of control and charged across the street into a crowd of spectators on the sidewalk.
The street, in a commercial and office area that is mainly deserted after dark, has long been the scene for illegal nighttime street races.
Kyle Collinsworth scored 20 points and BYU ended the Bulldogs' school-record 22-game winning streak, perhaps costing them a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
The Cougars won their sixth in a row to boost their NCAA tournament hopes heading into the West Coast Conference tournament.
Byron Wesley scored 17 points to lead Gonzaga (29-2, 17-1), which had already clinched the league's regular-season title.
The Cougars inbounded the ball to Ryan Andrus, who was fouled immediately and made both free throws for a three-point lead with 1.5 seconds left.
Gonzaga was trying to become the first team to go through the WCC regular season undefeated since the league's recent expansion to 10 schools.
Gonzaga made only five of its first 15 shots in the second half, and Tyler Haws scored seven consecutive points for the Cougars to extend the lead to 60-50.
Wesley's basket cut BYU's lead to 66-61 with 3:32 left before Collinsworth replied with a three-point play to push the lead back to eight.
Gonzaga scored the final three baskets of the first half, with Pangos' short jumper tying the score at 36.
Haws, the reigning WCC player of the year, leads the league in scoring at 22.3 points per game and is the career scoring leader at BYU.
Pangos has started 133 of his 134 career games.
