A group giving information on the “Yuriage” earthquake disaster
This group gives visitors an insight on the disaster and the aftermath in the “Yuriage” area. A guide joins your tour bus and goes around the “Yuriage” area telling you about the tragic events of the disaster. At the end of the tour, the bus takes you to a temporary market place; “Yuriage Saikai” Market and the Maple Pavilion so that you can give your support by shopping. “Yuriage” ark shell and Natori Seri (Japanese parsley) can be eaten at these places.
If your tour schedule is tight and you cannot come to the Market and/or the Pavilion, please let us know. If you register by fax, write a memo in relation to your itinerary. If you register via the Internet, please write your schedule after your name on the application form.
