Three years after the Great East Japan Earthquake, HakaseTaro Inc. (“HakaseTaro”) in Japan prepared “Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster Statics Map” and now provides it as “Memory of Great East Japan Earthquake 2011.3.11” on the Internet. “Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster Statics Map” not only represents the actual statistical numbers, but also compares the damage by region.
The Great East Japan Earthquake killed 15,884 people, and 2,636 people are still missing as of Feb 20, 2014. In Minamisanriku, Miyagi and Otsuchi, Iwate, more than 50% of the homes were completely destroyed. To remember this fierce natural disaster, and for our TOMODACHI who helped Tohoku and the rest of Japan, the Map was prepared.
