  • 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.

  • Recalled that immediately after the earthquake and stands in front of ipponmatsu, are they pray silently and nature. I think it was to commemorate the miracle that impact names as a way to appeal to tourists, including one. As the earthquake ruins (symbol) fully functional too. I hope to play step by step, rikuzentakata city and seaside.
