Welcome to Sanriku Kaigan

Most of the low-lying areas of towns and villages here were levelled, and almost 20,000 people lost their lives. It's a humbling experience to see what remains and to try to imagine what was here before. Mass reconstruction efforts have taken place, with much success: existing businesses have re-established themselves and new restaurants and hotels are popping up everywhere.
