  • Tanohata Tsunami Storytellers

    Iwate Shimohei-gun Tanohata Mura Wano 38-14
    "A nature program held on the Rikuchu Coast, known for ""cliffs, the sea, and its people.” Part of Banya Ecotourism initiative, the program tells the story of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. Locals who saw the disaster first-hand act as guides, telling about their experiences and conveying the need for disaster preparedness. With local ports and the villages where they were born and raised swallowed by the tsunami, these people were forced to live in temporary housing. The program conveys the authentic experience and lessons of victims who lived through the disaster, the support that aided their time in evacuation shelters, and recovery efforts since then."

    全く知らない土地に来てほっとするスペースです。すぐにスタッフの方が対応してくださいました。電車のことや街での食事のことなど便利です。このあたりは7時には商店街等も閉まってしまうので仕方ないのですが、閉まるのが早い。今後は、乗り換えの案内表示を大きく示すとか、三陸鉄道のPR、ユニバーサルな視点での掲示、Wifiスペースやeat inのスペースなどできてくるといいかなと思います。

Iwate Areas


A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
