The Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011, and the consequent great tsunami and widespread fires caused Kesennuma City to experience an absolute tragedy, with 1,152 people killed (including deaths in the disaster aftermath) and 214 people still missing.
The goal of the Ruins of the Great East Japan Earthquake Kesennuma City Memorial Museum is to preserve the memories and lessons of the disaster for the future and serve as “visible evidence” that continues ringing alarm bells, contributing to Kesennuma City’s initiative to achieve the target of zero tsunami deaths.
