It is Sendai city’s goal to never again let people fall victim to tsunami, to pass on the lessons we have learned, and to convey the real threat of tsunami to future generations. For these reasons, the ruins of the Arahama Elementary School building, along with other records, will be preserved, and opened to the public.
Inviting former residents of this area, the commemorative ceremony was held on April 29 and the public viewing was commenced from April 30.
