Tragedy and Resilience

Rikuzentakata, a quiet coastal town not known to many, was put on the map after the March 11th, 2011 tsunami. 7 years later, leaving very little trace of the place it once was, reconstruction still takes place. As Rikuzentakata opens its next chapter by reviving its town, it continues to create new ways for travelers to explore the Takata region. From fresh seafood to traditional Japanese carpentry, Rikuzentakata possesses endless charms of countryside living and has never been more ready to share that with the global community.
