Sendai 3/11 Memorial Community Center

Located on the premises of Arai Station, the eastern terminal of the Tozai Subway Line, the opening for the center was held in February 2016. The 1st floor is a “communication space” that provides information on the eastern coastal areas affected by the tsunami using maps and slides. On the 2nd floor, there are exhibits that describe memories of the coastal areas as well as the progress of our restoration and reconstruction efforts in the disaster areas. There is also a studio to hold workshops and residents’ group activities. The rooftop is utilized as a lounge. This Community Center, which acts as a base for passing on the experiences and lessons learned from the disaster, is not only a facility for showing exhibits but also a place where people from all walks of life, including nearby residents, residents’ groups and NPOs, are able to gather and take part in various activities and build new relationships.
