in front of Iidate Village Office

May 3rd we went to Minamisouma-city again to deliver a PC.  Minamisouma-city looked more active than it was 10 days ago. We drove to the seashore. The sea was calm and the plain rough field seemed peaceful. We found  a temporary altar in the corner of the foundation of the house. Later we noticed that  6 family members out of 7 were killed, including a one-year-old baby. On the way back to Koriyama, we stopped at Iidate-mura village office. Iidate is known as the place with the highest radiation rate these days. But before the town was famous for its way of living in which the villagers tried to save energy and live happily with what they had. It is ironic that the village which worried about  consumerism was affected. The whole village has to move away from their homes by the end of May.
