Amidst the severe damage of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, a temporary shopping center was set up in Okirai (Sanriku Town, Ofunato). On July 12, 2015 (Sun), the site opened permanently as the Sanriku-Saiko Shopping Association. This is the first time that a temporary shopping center along the coast has been established as a permanent fixture.

The Sanriku-Saiko Shopping Association was set up in a new location by members of the Urahama-Saiko Shopping Association, who came together in 2012. The site has 9 shops in total, including a restaurant, clothing store and barbershop. A meeting place has also been established for local residents.

The shopping center is situated next to a local council office, a medical clinic, and a construction site for public housing for disaster survivors. It is expected to take its place at the heart of the community.

The locations on the work experience program included the Miyako-Taro road along the Sanriku Coast, fire stations, nursing homes for the elderly, confectionary shops, lodging facilities, etc.

Three students on July 9 (Thu) and four students on July 10 (Fri) visited the construction site along the Miyako-Taro road, which is undergoing reconstruction after the disaster.

On July 11, 2015 (Sat), U.S.-Japan High School Students Summit in Rikuzentakata 2015 (sponsored by Rikuzentakata City Association for Recovery, Reconstruction, and Development Aid TAKATA) was held at the community hall in Rikuzentakata.

The participants consisted of 32 American high school students who are a part of the Japan Foundation’s project to visit Japan and 25 students from Ofunato High School. This year the summit focused on community building, with a focus on making “normalization”* something “normal.”

The high school students were split into mixed groups of eight and sent around the city to look for problems faced by the elderly, people with disabilities, foreign residents, and children. 

They then thought up solutions to these problems and presented on them. These solutions will be submitted to the city as a written proposal.

*Normalization: Making life as close to “normal conditions” as possible to people with disabilities and other disadvantaged people. Rikuzentakata City is focused on welcoming people from all walks of life.
