I visited northan part of Ibaraki prefecture, where was damaged by 4-year old “Aftermath of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami”.
The huge rock called “Two Islands”. You might say “But there is only one, where is the second one?”.
Yes, there “was” the smaller rock next to the Huge one.
But after the tragic earth quake and tsunami, the Rocks’ appearance was drastically changed.
The top of the unique trees were completely scraped by tsunami.
And the half of smaller rock was completely gone, which just can be seen only when the low tide.
The Two islands were absolutely photogenic icon for this area.
I felt pretty sad when I first visited after the disaster.
But After almost 4years later, the green is sightly coming back to the top of the rock, and the sea birds are sit on still as there were nothing happened.
Next morning, I got up 4 am and head to the Rock again.
During magic hour I was pretty moved to see the appearance of the rock, bravely standing in the sea reflected by the golden sunrise.
