Learning Program Conducted by a Kataribe (Narrator)

Contents/Itinerary for BOSAI

This lecture is a program where a Kataribe (narrator) guide talks about their actual experience of the earthquake disaster and the lessons they learned from the earthquake disaster, while showing a slide presentation. In addition, the tour of tsunami-affected areas takes approximately 1 hour where a Kataribe (narrator) guide explains the situation at the time of the disaster aboard the visitors' bus while travelling around the tsunami-affected areas. In either case, the Kataribe (narrator) guide will accompany you to the designated place in Minamisanriku Town and will guide you to the program after that.
