Sanriku coast part 2

Miyako port
On much of the Sanriku forests meet the sea



Concrete used as a breakwater to protect the town

Kitayamazaki cliffs

The kokumin shukusha (government run ho(s)tel) on the Sanriku
It should have been at sufficient elevation to have escaped the tsunami.

Breakwater protecting a tiny settlement.

Beaches and port protected by breakwaters.  There is high
ground to escape to if there is enough time....
