It's almost 3 months after the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan, life in downtown Iwaki has slowly returned to ' normal '... running water, electricity, most of the supermarkets were open filled with stocks of foods, no more cars lining up too long when filling up a gasoline, damaged roads were done and etc. BUT not at the disaster striken area on the coastal area in Iwaki. The ruins remained untouched since the earthquake and tsunami.... Coastal area in Iwaki is 20 minutes away from us and everytime we passed by to the place, there is this something that grips my heart~ it looks like we're in a different world.別世界です。。。
We wanted to feel and see with our own eyes most especially to Wakaba and Haruka although it would be shocking for them but we want them to understand of what's happening and think about the devastated area that was striken a tsunami. We went to Ena, Toyoma and Onahama ~ we stopped and walked around the area. I couldn't explain how I felt, the scenery has changed...The area surrounding us was overwhelming in it's devastation. A minute or so, we're all speechless...
This is the scenery at the coastal area in Iwaki when the tsunami strikes the area
Clearing the road
7-11 convenient store in Toyoma operating and open despite of the store's damage I almost cried to have seen the damage
Some of the few items sold were all placed inside 7-11's truck
Abandoned and ripped house Speechless Photos washed away by the tsunami
Someone's car, washed away by the tsunami
Almost 3 months after the disaster but it still looked like that at Ena
Scenery at Toyoma
