A sign-board at Matsushima. The Husband and I stopped to take a picture of this.
It seems incredulous that a tsunami did strike one year on..
The Husband and I took a trip to Tohoku and Tokyo last year this exact same time. Our first stop was the city of Sendai. Sendai is a wonderful city, capital of the Miyagi prefecture and I blogged much about the great food and beef tongue.
We also visited several coastal cities nearby such as the famous Matsushima and the town of good sushi, Shiogama.
It was in horror as we watched on TV yesterday that an 8.9 earthquake and destructive tsunami just hit the area, causing hundreds of deaths and massive destruction.
We'd be praying for you, Japan.
