Pop-up card (The buildings in Iwate Prefecture that lost by the earthquake)


March 11th is coming soon. It’s been five years since the Great East Japan Earthquake, so I made pop-up cards of the buildings that lost in the earthquake at that time.

The first photo is the former the Office of Takata Factory, Iwate Kenze Silk Reeling Co., Ltd.  At the time of the earthquake, it was the building of Suisen Sake Brewery. Although the building was lost, the company soon began to move toward restoration, and after brewing by renting a warehouse of the same trader, the company’s factory has been in operation since 2012, the year after the earthquake.

The second photo is the building of Rikuzentakata Station. This station building was also washed away by the tsunami.
The Ofunato Line, to which Rikuzentakata Station belongs, operates between Kesennuma and Sakari by the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) instead of railroad.

This time, you can download the pattern of the former the Office of Takata Factory, Iwate Kenze Silk Reeling.
Please use it if you like.

Although reconstruction is progressing in some areas, there are still many people living in evacuation. (According to the Reconstruction Agency, as of February 12, 174,000 people.) I hope that everyone can regain a peaceful life soon.
