Before jumping on a Shinkansen train back to Tokyo, I could have a chance to talk with Nakao-san, Miyagi Prefecture's Specialized Officer for reconstruction from the East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011, at Hotel Metropolitan Sendai. Nakao-san's role is to support local communities, municipalities, and organizations in devastated area acting as a a bridge between them and prefectural government. Two days ago, I bumped into him at Hamaguri Beach. Our conversation today was about how amazing the future possibilities of Greater Ishinomaki area including Hamaguri Beach are.
