Oirase Tsunami Gate

The tsunami barrier and open floodgate in Oirase (おいらせ町), Japan a week after the tsunami. Oirase lies about halfway between Hachinohe and Misawa on the Pacific Coast of Aomori Prefecture.


My dad shot this photo this morning and then sent it to me from the road with his brand new iPad. My parents were without power or Internet for two days after the quake and tsunami. Two days after power was restored, my dad bought a brand new iPad and started taking these photos. They can't buy food, gas or CNG, but electric gizmos are still available.
