Pre-tsunami Japan: 2010

Matsushima, Miyagi Prefecture

Matsushima is an important tourist area and tsunami evacuation routes are well marked by signs on posts (below, left) and incorporated into the pavement (below, right). The signs typically give both a direction and distance for evacuation. [Click photos for larger versions.]
