Sightseeing:

Miyako City in Iwate Prefecture was one of the northernmost cities to suffer devastating damage from the 2011 Tsunami. The rising waters swept across many of the city's coastal districts, destroying homes, businesses, port facilities and a large part of the local fishing fleet. Some of the tsunami's most unforgettable videos were filmed in Miyako, depicting a huge black swell overtaking the seawall protecting the town and sweeping boats and cars and everything in its path along with it. Miyako is known for its beautiful coastline, especially the popular Jodogahama Beach on a scenic peninsula just north of the city center. Tourist facilities around the beach were heavily damaged, but after three years the seaside promenades have been replaced and improved and the sightseeing attractions fully reopened.
