The MINAMISANRIKU 311 Memorial is home to a small theater. There, you can watch the firsthand accounts of town residents, think about what you would have done in the same situations, and discuss your thoughts with the people around you. In that principal component of the MINAMISANRIKU 311 Memorial, you will be a part of collective learning about natural disasters from your own perspective.
The MINAMISANRIKU 311 Memorial continues to collect residents’ firsthand accounts, photographs, and videos of the disaster. In addition to preserving these memories, the Memorial creates new exhibits and learning programs with these materials.
The MINAMISANRIKU 311 Memorial has an area featuring artworks where visitors can gaze into the memories of the Great East Japan Earthquake with the eyes of their hearts. It is a place for quietly reflecting on the meaning of nature, humanity, and life. Additionally, the Memorial also offers visitors the option to join tours where they can visit areas near the museum that have preserved memories of the disaster, as well as diverse educational workshops.
“If I were in the same situation, how would I make decisions and act?” In the Learning Theater, visitors watch videos of firsthand accounts of town residents and discuss with the people around them about how they would make decisions and act if they were faced with similar circumstances. The programs offer visitors an opportunity to gain a fresh understanding of disaster prevention.All Programs
