  • Did not at all ashamed for preservation in support and IL. I think there are pros and cons as a symbol of reconstruction assistance to save hope.

  • This is where talked about traveling around the Northeast and my children are the most memorable. High-priced would imagine from the fact to save over the cost of approval or disapproval, but thus on the memories of young children have been deeply engraved I should leave forever as a symbol of reconstruction. Efforts to rebuild lives and at the same time hope monument tell the tsunami threat to future generations, in a parallel investment is needed and said Vice Mayor is exactly what exactly. Accordance with the decided to just look at home as well as buy souvenirs of several thousand yen in a parking stall. Walk 10 minutes on foot from the parking. Within driving distance to your destination, get off the car it would not, coldness etc is required. Question was "worth watching just ippongi there are?" the foot bad to your old. We had to have been tried to "certainly just one tree only. But is different from what you feel. I thought I was good to go, so go take a look at? "And satisfied the old man said, and began to walk toward the ipponmatsu. Split trunk has been embalmed and axle made of metal are longs in the tree. Also, minor part in replication complete lightning rod is equipped. But it does not change the fact that tsunami stood at this location was left. I think is worth to even think I stood in its place.

  • Rikuzentakata City route next to the parking lot, not quite walking. AFEW buildings damaged by the earthquake around the beautiful and has build embankment, etc.. Youth Hostel behind the pine trees that is the greatness of this disaster. Youth Hostel in remains of the day, time had stopped. If I had stayed.

  • It is absolutely worth it to come to the pine and pay your respects to the 1800 people who were lost in this city in 2011 and the pine forest that was reduced from 70,000 to just this one. I am glad that this will be preserved and that their is English signage explaining it. While you're in the area, see the old junior high school where the students evacuated safely, the old and new water gates to keep the sea out, and take a rest at the cute little cafe which serves delicious soy sauce (yes, really) ice cream.
  • A wonderful monument of hope. Looks very similar to the original, I am glad this is here now.
  • I visited 4/2017. Whether or not say tourist destinations. Here as a starting point, and South coastline to ishinomaki, visited the affected areas. Or damage differences or differences of administration of reconstruction so much difference in so it seemed. Rikuzentakata is visited at the time, yet was middle of stacking construction. Pine, left only one building damaged by the tsunami and embalming. High dike built to hide the sea. Had seen only in pictures, but I saw real, came the words. Come a lot of people, I think it is important that local residents would be complicated, but actually look.

  • At 2017 - June's disappointed spot. Free facility is not bad, but if you pay this gigantic payment levels. Fleeing the earthquake occurs, under the influence of the construction from the parking lot to ipponmatsu hahaha! The route say it before fleeing signs but when a tsunami wiped out. Emergency evacuation passage entrance to the barricades. It is not enough at the moment see also ippommatsu.

  • It was very shocking for me. It is better never went anywhere. Worth the look and important monuments and tourist attractions just look and tell when the earthquake that is free, go to this place if you mind common sense should see some things.
