Hi all. A few days back I wrote a bit about some interesting places in Iwate, Japan that I had visited. I hadn’t intended originally on including Kesenumma, but as I wrote I thought about it and included it. I thought today I would provide some reference with a couple of YouTube videos on the tsunami and Kesennuma. The Channel 4 Report is very interesting, the other video was shot live as the water gathered force and took over the town pulling houses, boats and everything else up with it. I must admit both, but particularly the second, are confronting so keep in mind before you watch. I’m a little staggered that people stood on balconies and filmed it, the force of the water might well have pushed over the buildings they were in. It’s nearly ten years – it will be in March next year – since the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. But their effects will be felt far into the future.
Thanks. May the Journey Never End.
