Pacific Coast just North of Taro, Iwate 田老 岩手
This was as close as I could get on the coastal road that led into Taro from the north through Koshida (越田). I had to walk to get this far, as the road was entirely erased in places when it got close to the ocean. The entire Iwate coast consists of peninsulas and bays which would amplify any tsunami. It's from this area that we get the word "tsunami," or "harbor wave."
