A coastal park that showcases the power and resilience of Japan's nature and communities
This park is a testament to the strength of Japan. It demonstrates the ability of the environment and communities to recover after the area was destroyed in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
The Michinoku Coastal Trail is the ideal introduction to the park's charms. It runs the length of the park, meandering through fishing villages, past idyllic beaches and along cliffs. The Miracle Pine Tree memorial in Rikuzentakata is a stark reminder of the past, but hope for the future is just as powerful. Speak with locals when you visit a fishing town with a guide and see the beauty of the area while riding horseback at Tanesashi Coast or sea kayaking at Kabushima Island.
