Traditional exchange facility meet Kadowaki

Named from the initials of the March 11 Education & Exhibition Theater, this private facility was built with donations and other funds to promote connections through 3.11 and encourage people to move forward together for the future.
The theater has two large screens that show how more than 100 residents taking action to evacuate sets in motion a “chain of evacuation,” which can save many lives. An exhibit of disaster-related items received from bereaved families, along with an animated cartoon from the viewpoint of children who experienced the disaster, help visitors to reflect on the disaster. Located near the Ishinomaki Minamihama Tsunami Memorial Park and Ishinomaki City Kadonowaki Elementary School Ruins, MEET Kadonowaki also offers a program in which participants can use an augmented reality app or listen to storytelling to relive the lost townscape and experience the lessons learned from the March 11 evacuation.
