Naka-Kon 2014 Charity- Miyagi Prefecture Coastal Forest Restoration Project

During the Tohoku Tsunami, 3,600 hectares of the Coastal Forest in the Miyagi Prefecture was uprooted. Of this, half was 400 year old forest in Natori City. This landscape provided a necessary wind block from the salty air and sandstorms that can occur in the area. Without this cover, land quality has been affected and the local farming economy has suffered.
