TSUNAMI-4 夕日 Evening Sun

“It’s beautiful, isn’t it . . .”

We later learned from the map that a long line of substantial stores had once stood here: a self-service gas station, a general clothing store, a car supply retailer . . . But from our vantage point amid the ruins of Route 45, the town of Rikuzentakada looked empty. Across the barren plain we could see the mountains in the distance. Mysterious puddles of water dotted the land around us, though we knew they couldn’t be rice paddies. When the sun finally began to sink behind the mountains, time seemed to slow as we looked out over the panorama before us. The slowed-down time seemed to soothe something within our hearts. Every time we looked at the scene, Kuyama always muttered the same grim question to himself: “I wonder what used to be here?”
