Nine days later, an 80-year-old woman and a teenage boy are found beneath the rubble.
According to police, rescuers found the 16-year-old boy on the roof of his house in the hard-hit city of Ishinomaki, calling out for help.
He then led rescuers inside, where they found an 80-year-old woman.
Both were weak but conscious.
National broadcaster N-H-K showed a helicopter taking the two to a nearby hospital.
The quake and ensuing tsunami devastated Japan's northeastern coast killing more than 8100 people with 12,000 still missing.
Another 452,000 have been displaced and are living in shelters.
