Fishing Coop & Gas station and the Taro wall, Iwate 田老 岩手

Fishing Coop & Gas station and the Taro wall, Iwate 田老 岩手
The 1956 wall, the first built, was strong and held up to the 15-18 meter wall of water that poured over it. The fishing coop building was concrete and withstood the force of the water. It's back in business as seen by all the cars in its lot. The wooden buildings were smashed and the other concrete buildings were damaged enough that they were being torn down as we watched 15 months after.

One of the first businesses to begin after the tsunami was the gas station on the left. The second was the convenience store in the background behind the coop.
