Just to accompany the last post about Iwate Prefecture, here is some short video footage we shot from the buses around the tsunami zone. You can broadly see where much of the larger debris has been piled up into enormous mountains and that many of the roads have been cleared. It’s also tragically apparent how total the devastation was.
Note that the audio is mainly just engine noise, so better to keep the volume down.
[Update: As of April 2012 for at least 12 month, I’ve paid for Vimeo Plus, so this should look a little nicer on this site!]
