１年と２日後の石巻（ISHINOMAKI a year and two days late. )
2012年 03月 13日
Well I started work from morning 2day. Heard that the dolls for the Boy's Festival were not packed correct last year, cos it was just after the quake. I had imagined I won't be a hard worker, cos I'm not so young anymore. But the master o the shop, looked at least 70, was a enthusiastic old man, so I got no excuse for being lazy. I hope I didn't annoy the co-workers cause I move slow by nature.
And the story o TSUNAMI began during the break. One o the workers told me about the day. The music store is located more than a kilometer away from the sea but the waves attacked the store again and again. Among the 5 attacks, the 3rd attack was so big and he found a girl drifted on the stream. So he shouted to a girl, "hold on the telegraph pole and climb it!! " and she did it and saved her life.
After the TSUNAMI attack, there were a lot of fish such as flatfish and eel were left behind on the road. They are usually on the bottom of the sea and it amazed him a lot. Then, in the chaos he went to a convenience store 2 get something 2 eat. But after standing in line, he couldn't have anything cos everything was sold out. At night he stayed at the building of the music store but he heard someone trying to climb up the building to get something illegally, and it scared him a lot.
The story scared me a lot, and the place I went after the work terrified me more.
I had never ever seen such a place before. So honestly speaking I can't describe what it was. Remembered the scenery of the town which was under construction, back in the days I moved to YOKOHAMA in my 10th grade. The same thing was there were a lots of vacant divisions for houses and a few houses were there. But the difference was, the few houses left were all damaged by TSUNAMI. Lots of things were left behind. such as TV monitor, some kind of broken tables and the huge amount of the concrete pieces.
I watched the elementary school which is called KADOWAKI-ELEMENTARY-SCHOOL. And I couldn't believe that the broken and burnt building used 2 b used as a school only until a year and 2 days ago.
At night I found a club in the center of the town. Its called LA STRADA. I knew there by its name and heard that several musicians I know played and 2 play there. Hopefully I'll visit there as a musician in near future, but I guess it was the right choice for me 2 b here as a volunteer this time.
＊この建物の奥が楽器屋さん。トタンがめくれていて、津波のパワーを思い知る。(The music store is next 2 this building. You can tell how strong the TSUNAMI was. The iron sheets were half torn. )
＊ここに住宅街があったなんて、信じられません。(I don't believe there used to b a town here. )
＊カーナビによると、ここにコンビニがあったらしい。(My car navigation system showed there was a convenience store right here. )
＊やや観光名所になりつつある、港からやってきた巨大な缶。(This is the huge can drifted all the way from ISHINOMAKI port. It's becoming a kind of landmark there. )
＊津波で流された車が山積みに。(The cars piled up on the shore. They were damaged by the TSUNAMI. )
