Day 5: part 2

Mangattan Museum

This is Ishinomori Mangattan Museum dedicated to the most famous Manga artist in Ishinomaki. It’s being repaired right now but will be open to the public in October.

Lots of cars.

Lots of cars cross this bridge to get to the other side of the river. Can you believe the tsunami covered this whole area underwater? Crazy.

Blue sign indicates where the waterline was.

Past the bridge, there was  a sign of where the waterline was.

Still the same.

Being near the river, some houses around here are too far gone to be repaired. The town is focusing on houses that are still repairable, and leaving the destroyed ones for later. It seemed like at any moment, this house could collapse.

Pile of rubble in the middle of the house.

Cleaning takes a long time and a lot of strength. Though it still seems dirty, I bet that this place took a lot of people to get it this far to remove large scraps and shoveling sludge.

Asking for help.

Riho wanted to visit the house where she found a friendly cat last year. We asked this nice gentleman where it was. He pointed in a direction and lead us there. But he told us that they demolished the house.

No walls.

The tsunami ripped open this whole wall of this house. A lot of houses in this area looked similar.

New hairdo, anyone?

I found a chair of what seems like came from a hair salon. I didn’t see any buildings that looked like one so I think the water traveled this chair here.
