This article features the town of Miyako in Iwate Prefecture, in an area badly hit by the earthquake/tsunami 9+ years ago.

The natural beauty of the coast seems to have bounced back more quickly than humans have, so there is beautiful scenery to enjoy, too. (Archived article originally published by Tokyo Weekender)
