New Bonds for a New Life: Miyagi Prefecture

VOD for this program is no longer available.

Aired: November 10, 2017 (UTC)


Information

With its vast plains and 142 fishing ports, Miyagi Prefecture was once called “Food Kingdom.” However, the tsunami that followed the Great East Japan Earthquake dealt enormous damage to the fields, fishing ports and beautiful scenery along the prefecture’s coast. Now, some six years on from that fateful day, the farmers, fishermen and hospitality industry workers of Miyagi Prefecture are working hard to make a fresh start with a positive attitude and a renewed appreciation for the importance of the bonds between people. The close bonds and connections that began among local groups of friends here have now grown to include those who came from other parts of Japan as volunteers and, through them, people throughout Japan and around the world. This program introduces several examples of their various all-new endeavors.
