Opening of Beaches for Surfers in Shichigahama

On November 11, 2011, a beach opening ceremony was held at a surf spot on Shobuta and Azukihama beaches in Shichigahama, Miyagi. In Shichigahama, which was devastated by the tsunami, surfers and many others began to clean the Azukihama beach on April 10, 2011 and have since continuously conducted beach cleanups.
Following the memorial service and a ceremony to pray for safety, Shobuta and Azukihama beaches were officially opened.
