I was there when this happened and also saw the aircraft being repaired by the Boeing AOG team. The rear pressure bulkhead was distorted and had to be replaced (as well as the belly skins and frames). This involved removing the whole back end of the aircraft (Vert stab, horiz stab, rear emp, APU etc). If you stood directly behind the aircraft you could see the last row of seats! Since Japan Boeing take no chances with pressure bulkheads. It was a remarkable piece of work and a credit to the skill of the Boeing engineers and mechanics.

Great shot, embarrassing incident for all involved. Lucky that everyone got out of this safely. Looks like a big dog dragging his rear end across the carpet!
