A lot of what we've been discussing on the Students Rebuild Japan blog this year lies somewhere between Recovery and Restoration of the Tohoku area. This month the City of Ishinomaki published the latest reports and plans for the region - spanning all the way to Year H32, and well into the third phase of post-disaster, Reconstruction.
Last week Hiromi and I sat down and leafed through about 70 pages of charts, numbers, maps and diagrams, big ideas, and bullet points, basking in Unfiltered Information. Well, at least I was excited. Excited to see Ishinomaki City's take on reconstruction as compared to the human-scale work I was more familiar with.
