Ishinomaki is a city famous in the Manga world for hosting the Manga Island, Manga Road and the Ishinomori Manga Museum, in honor to Shotaro Ishinomori, who held the Guinness World Record for most comics published by one author, totaling over 128,000 pages. The city is filled of colorful statues of manga figures as opposed to the regular statues of war heroes you see in other cities. There is even one at the entrance of City Hall. This beautiful place once is now destroyed.
The shoreline and areas nearby is absolutely wiped out. Even as we walked inland, the devastation can be seen in miles Several boats traveled miles in land. Lastly, we met Ms Sato who is a proud owner who lost a lot in the Tsunami, but she was determined to restart her business. Her spirit is great and I believe we can all help her, and we will soon find ways where you can participate to help.
Tomorrow would be a tougher day. Snow is expected and we are going to more shelters. -- Robin Low
