Mr. Yoshida’s Houses in the Okada Area
Okada area, Miyagino-ku, Sendai
A record of Mr. Yoshida’s houses in the Okada area as part of the “Livable Home” Series.
The house closest to the sea.
At the front door, there is a nest built by swallows.
There are clear marks of the tsunami on the doors.
All the floors are raised, and slaked lime is scattered.
Walls are removed, and insulation soaked by the tsunami is replaced.
The windows are dirty due to marks left by the tsunami.
This is the middle house.
It seems to have been mostly repaired and is rented to volunteers free of charge.
Mr. Yoshida, who is giving an interview.
Some of the walls and floors are still being replaced.
This house is the farthest from the sea.
Although it was the house least damaged by the tsunami, and the one to which repair work has progressed the most, you can still see signs of the tsunami in places.
This bench was made from a log by chainsaw artists.
This scar was made when furniture that floated on the water hit the ceiling.
This place has been left as it was without cleaning.
