Iwanuma City: Kukominami Park

April 26, 2015 

In the emergency recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred March 11th, 2011, the U.S.-conducted mission “Operation TOMODACHI” was carried out in Sendai Airport, located in Iwanuma. Due to U.S.-Japan cooperation, Sendai Airport was able to reopen earlier than expected. To honor the strong friendship, 50 Friendship Blossoms dogwood trees were planted in Kukominami Park in April 2015.
