Ofunato City: Tsunami Reconstruction Zone

December 31, 2015 

During the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake, the United States dispatched search and rescue teams to Ofunato City, who worked alongside Japanese citizens to rebuild the city. Sixty Friendship Blossoms dogwood trees were planted in the reconstruction area to commemorate their joint cooperation in helping Japan recover from the disaster.
