*Above picture is taken from Hiyoriyama.
I heard that the Ishinomaki Minamihama Memorial Park has opened, so I went there on the afternoon of June 2nd.
This park plays a role of mourning the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake and handing down memories.
Since it was a weekday and also ” Miyagi 3.11 Tsunami disaster Memorial Museum” was not open yet, the number of visitors was small.
*According to the message board, it was mentioned that it will be open at 3:00 pm on June 6th.
The area of the park is 38.8 hectares.
Requiescats and memorial monument ‘CIRCLE WIND 2011 -KIZUNA-’
There are small hills, several multipurpose plazas, ponds, wetlands and pine grove which existed before.
A bridge called Kawaminato Ohashi beside the park is now under construction. It says “16m to connect”.

When I climbed Hiyoriyama to take a picture of the entire park, the torii gate, which is a symbol of Hiyoriyama, disappeared.
It seems that it was dismantled due to the effects of aging and repeated earthquakes.
( Photo of the time when there was a torii gate … )
The torii was built in 1935 and was made of reinforced concrete and was about 5 meters high.
