Under Construction

Sunset Tide vol.1

夕潮の帰り道 vol.1

Takano Hiroyuki


One year and seven months after the great earthquake. The inland area regained normal daily life, and weeds grow lush in the maritime area. Normal days were estranged from March 11. It becomes difficult to tell, what kind of landscape and how every day was there in the coastal area before the tsunami damage. When you listen to the sound in the changing environment, you can recognize that the sound has changed. A far-off sound can be heard, the nearby sound has changed to the chirping of insects. We keep watching, tracing someone's homeward path.
