Hikado Marketplace (ひかど市場)

Overviewteamupdatesworkspacecalendarfiles 

The covered wooden deck made of salvaged timber from the tsunami was completed in June 2011. The owner, carpenters and all parties involved making this a reality had a big opening celebration in July 2011. In the beginning of August, people from three neighboring communities had a very successful summer festival. Now people that have moved into nearby temporary housing come and enjoy a bowl of ramen noodles for lunch and a glass of cold beer after work.
