Fifty People Ran up the Stairway of Suwa Shrine

When the tsunami hit the small village area of Morotake, located in the town of Namie, fifty people survived by running up the stairway of Suwa Shrine and staying at the top of the hill overnight.

From the hill, you can see the ventilation towers of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.


Suwa Shrine got flattened by the earthquake.
