Road torn into the sea (道が海へ) by Zo

Road runs into the sea

Taizo Yoshida, director of Neighbors and photographer (please see the site Chocora) continued from Sendai to Koriyama in Fukushima on the 17th along the coastline.

Looking down from  Route 6, the fields between the Route 6 and the sea were covered with mud and sand and torn houses. Containers, and agricultural machinery were scattered endlessly.

“When I came down to the road along the coastline, I saw the whole village and the railway were washed off. I tried to drive carefully not to hit the debris, looking at the cracks and subsidences. The similar wild-looking scenery continues for a long time until suddenly the road was torn and sank into the sea.”

Wild looking field goes on and on

17日、七ヶ浜での物資支援を支援配給を終えて、沿岸部を南下した。国道6号線から見渡すと、海岸線からほぼ6号線までの間の田畑が、津波が残した土砂に覆われ、その中に車両やコンテナ、農機具、建物の残骸などが散在する風景がどこまでも広がっている。バイパスを降りて、海沿いの道に出ると、集落も線路も完全に破壊されているのを目の当たりにする。何とかがれきをよけて通れるようになった道を、ひび割れや陥没に注意しながら進む。行けども、行けども荒涼とした景色が広がる道を進んでいくと突然、目の前の道は崩落して海に落ち込み寸断していた。(ぞう)
