Hayama Shrine in Ogatsu
Ogatsu, Ishinomaki, Miyagi
At Hayama Shrine in September 2011, Ogatsu, Ishinomaki, Miyagi.
This is a beautiful shrine with an Ogatsu stone slate roof.
It was one of the shrines that had a stage for Ogatsu Hoin Kagura, Ogatsu’s traditional art that is designated as a significant intangible folk cultural asset of Japan.
Because the shrine is located on a reasonable level above the sea, it was not washed away by the tsunami. But the shrine pavilion was dragged by the backwash and suffered fatal damage.
The approach to the shrine.
A small shrine located next to the approach.
The approach to Isono Shrine behind Hayama Shrine. I learn that the tsunami came up to this shrine gate.

I look in from the main entrance.
The wall on the right side has fallen outward.
I can see that the building was dragged by the backwash and has largely moved from its foundations.
A green plant is growing from the gap between floorboards.
