Having formulated the Miyako City Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Revival Plan in Jul. 2012, we at Miyako City are working for restoration with our three pillars of revival being “Restoration of Housing and Life,” “Industrial/Economic Revival,” and “Building Safe Communities.” For “Building Safety Communities,” which is one of the three pillars, we have defined “Succession of Memory of Disaster to Future Generations” as the direction of our work. We will preserve and compile records of the tsunami disaster and disseminate the information.
This book was issued by the 'Project to pass down disaster stories' implemented from FY 2011.
We would like to thank the members of the Miyako City Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Records Editorial Committee, including Chair Yoriko Kanda and Vice Chair Masaaki Minami, for the kind services, as well as every individual from related organizations who provided cooperation in collecting materials and records.
