Bon in the Ocean, Sanriku

The memory of the tsunami disaster on 11th March, 2011 should be shared widely and kept for long to overcome the tragedy and to realize a better future of Sanriku, southern coastal areas in Iwate. The “Bon” is a holy period in mid-August when, according to the Japanese tradition, souls of the departed return their homes. The “Bon in the Ocean, Sanriku” renews memories of the victims of the tsunami disaster through tying together the communities of Sanriku while paying attention to the different characteristics of the Bon custom in each community. A strong tie is now necessary for opening the door to the future.
