Tarou Tsunami Wall, Iwate 田老町 岩手

Tarou Tsunami Wall, Iwate 田老町 岩手
A section of the 10m high wall built to protect Tarou-Town after being swept away 2ce by tsunami. The 1896 tsunami would have topped the wall, but probably blocked a lot of the water. Unfortunately, many towns and cities along the Japanese coast don't have this kind of protection.

As it turned out, the 2011 tsunami topped the wall turning the town into a "field of rubble."
