The fishing ports of Togura

A fishing boat is seen docked at one of Togura fishing ports.

The small fishing village in Minami Sanriku, was vastly destroyed by the 2011 tsunami that hit the northeast coast of Japan. Thousands died and hundreds of families lost their houses, business and boats.

The recovering community works now in a cooperative system where the few remaining boats, spared by the tsunami, are shared by all.
