Kesennuma Run

I visited 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami affected areas in Tohoku yesterday and today. This morning, I could run in Kesennuma.

The port as seen from my hotel.

Beautiful sunrise over the harbor.

There are still huge scars left from the tsunami - these areas are completely flatten.

There used to be a house here.

Some buildings still stand, but not usable.

A lot of re-construction work is going on.

They are trying to raise the level of the ground.

Temporary breakwater.

The entrance to the fish market - the blue marking at the 2nd floor shows where the tsunami water level reached.

The fishing town still has a long way to go before it is fully recovered from the damage.
