The Hashino Iron Mining and Smelting Site in Kamaishi to be designated as a World Heritage Site

On May 4, 2015 (Mon.), the Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution were recommended to be registered as a World Heritage Site by ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites), the UNESCO advisory panel. These sites also include Kamaishi's Hashino Iron Mining and Smelting Site in Iwate Prefecture.

The Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution are related to the heavy industry that contributed to Japan's industrialization in the mid-to-late 19th century, such as shipbuilding, iron and steel manufacturing, and coal mining industries. The Sites are composed of 23 spots in 11 cities in 8 prefectures, such as the Yawata Steel Works (Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka Prefecture) and the Hashima Coal Mines (Nagasaki City, Nagasaki Prefecture), known as “Battleship Island.” Iwate’s Hashino Iron Mining and Smelting Site is Japan's oldest extant Western-style blast furnace.

The decision on World Heritage status will be decided at the end of June when the World Heritage Committee meets for its annual session.

In the two days after receiving the nomination, some 2,000 people visited the Hashino Information Center next to the site. There are high hopes that this will prove a boon for the reconstruction from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.

Fishermen Workshops and Sappa Boats: a festival celebrating reconstruction (Tanohata)

In Tanohata Village’s Tsukue district lies the Tsukuehama Ban’yagun, or Fishermen’s Village of Tsukuehama. From May 2, 2015 through May 6 (Sat. – Wed.), a festival was organized by the NPO Taikenmura Tanohata Network to celebrate the reconstruction of the village and its “Sappa” boats.

The Fisherman’s Village needed to be completely rebuilt following the earthquake and tsunami. With its reconstruction, the popular Sappa Boat Adventure attraction has been brought to the village through its main office and port now located in Tsukuehama, and the Fisherman’s Village can now begin full-fledged operations.

Many tourists from both within and outside of Iwate came to visit during the festival. Along with the Sappa Boat Adventure tours, people were able to experience the day-to-day life of a fishing village through activities like making salt by boiling down salt water, and a cooking class which taught how to remove the shells of fresh sea urchins and sea squirts.
 

Tohoku’s Rakuten Golden Eagles Donate Artificial Grass to Otsuchi

On May 2, 2015 (Sat.), 46 elementary school students and their guardians were invited to the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles vs. Saitama Seibu Lions baseball game (at the Rakuten Kobo Stadium in Miyagi) for the second Tohoku Smile Day.

This was held in part to support the reconstruction from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.  
The Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles also began fundraising to donate artificial grass for a multi-purpose sports ground to be built in Otsuchi Town.

These activities are a part of the Tohoku Smile Project, which uses the power of sports to bring happiness to the children of Tohoku. Otsuchi plans to use approximately 12,000 m² of artificial grass to construct the “Otsuchi Children Green Field” (preliminary name). The field should be completed by March 2016.
