The Sun Rises Again on Minamisanriku

Eight years after the 3/11/11 tsunami, Minamisanriku is still working on recovery and transformation of their community. I visited here in June of 2011 as a member of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (1), May of 2013 with my family, and September of 2014 with Oregon Public Broadcasting (2).  It was during the last visit that I recorded this 4 minute video from the Kanyo Hotel looking due East out on Shizugawa Bay. May the rising sun continue to shine on Minamisanriku, heralding their path forward.
