The former Kadowaki Elementary School, which was constructed as the remains of the Great East Japan Earthquake, was opened to the public from April 3rd.

Kadowaki Elementary School is the only earthquake disaster site that leaves traces of the tsunami fire.

The black stone is engraved with a school song along with a picture of the school building before the earthquake.
