Onagawa in January 2012 (Part 2)
Images for Comparison
For each pair of pictures, the upper photograph was taken in April 2011 and the lower one in January 2012.
Due to land subsidence, seawater spilled over the quay walls before, but now the area has been strengthened with large sandbags and an embankment. It seems this was a temporary measure as there is a gap between the original quay and the embankment, which has become filled with seawater.
Before, I was not able to go straight along this road due to overturned buildings. They have been removed, and the road is now passable.
Looking in the direction of Onagawa Station from Onagawa-hama.
Near Onagawa Station. Twisted rails, cars that drifted to the cemetery on the hill, and debris have now been removed.
