With the help of multiple support organizations, a project was begun that seeks to “plant sakura trees in areas affected by the disaster”.
Sakura Line 311 Home Page (Japanese)
It was not until after the March 11th tsunami that it was discovered that tsunamis of similar size had struck the area in the past.
Had it only been known that a tsunami large enough to overcome the breakwater could potentially happen, more lives could have been saved… From that idea this project was born.
This project seeks to plant sakura trees that demarcate the reach of the tsunami, to show future generations the extent of the damage.
Starting with the development of the home page, SAVE TAKATA seeks to support the project by publishing information about it.
The Sakura Line 311 Home Page will be created in conjunction with the company “days and days”, which is run by people from Rikuzentakata.

By supporting the development and entrepreneurship of local companies like “days and days”, SAVE TAKATA hopes to rejuvenate Rikuzentakata’s economy.
