Visiting people in Kobuchihama. Giving some gifts from Tokyo and receiving tea, Cola and food in return 🙂
We stayed at Atagoso, the ryokan that was almost totally destroyed in the tsunami but that they have now rebuilt. We had a great dinner at Atagoso and friends from Kobuchihama joined. We spent most of the evening talking and eating, before I got so tired I just had to go to bed.
Are “things” starting to get back to normal in Kobuchihama? Can people make a living in town once again?
Yes, many are now making a living again. And they are back to “normal,” though many are still living in temporary houses and you still see “scars” from the tsunami.
