    "About this facility

    Mission statement

     The Japanese archipelago is one of the most destined places on earth, with a high risk of natural disasters, and we, who live in this area, have improved our ability to respond to natural disasters for many years.
     However, we lost many precious lives due to the The Great East Japan Earthquake tsunami that occurred on March 11, 2011.
     In order not to repeat this sadness, it is important to protect our lives from various natural disasters and overcome them by preparing ourselves with wisdom and technology and acting on our own.
     The Great East Japan Earthquake Tsunami Tradition Museum aims to learn from the wisdom of its predecessors, share the facts and lessons learned from the The Great East Japan Earthquake Tsunami with people all over the world, and realize a society that is resilient to natural disasters.
     Then, we will send out a picture of overcoming the The Great East Japan Earthquake Tsunami with thanks for the support.”
