Cherry blossoms blooming in the rubble of the Great East Japan Earthquake | Gamo, Miyagino-ku, Sendai, Miyagi Japan


In the Gamo area of Miyagino-ku, Sendai, Miyagi prefecture Japan, there is a cherry tree that blooms beautifully in the spring, and for locals, it was popular as a cherry blossom to signal spring.
However, I thought that the cherry blossoms would be damaged by the tsunami of the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11, 2011, and that they would never bloom again.
Still, beautiful flowers bloomed while being buried in rubble that remained untouched.

Debris that has accumulated on the road is removed beside the road so that disaster recovery vehicles and emergency vehicles can pass.

Despite being damaged by the tsunami, all the remaining cherry trees were in full bloom.

Some trees blossomed powerfully by extending branches through the gaps in the rubble.

Residential homes and precious human lives have been deprived of the tsunami in various parts of the Tohoku coast.I feel like I got the energy and courage to see the flowers blooming with the last power.
The cherry blossoms did not bloom in 2012, and all the trees died and their lives ended.The area is now banned from living and is being cut down to rebuild the land.
