About the educational trip.
In the 700 km of coastline stretching from Aomori through Iwate and Miyagi down to Fukushima Prefecture, you'll find Sanriku Fukko National Park and other geoparks that are home to breathtaking views. In what's referred to as a ria coast, there is a complex system of inlets and coastlines, and this changing landscape is sure to impress. Seeing the rising sun off this coast will surely be a moment you can hold in your heart forever.
Off the Sanriku coast, you will find an area where the Oyashio (cold) and Kuroshio (warm) currents meet, which is also one of the three largest fishing areas in the world. Many different types of fish can be caught there, and the fishing industry and hatchery industry has been prominent in this area for a long time.

The great earthquake of eastern Japan occurred in March, 2011. Since then, people have triumphed over sadness and used the many contributions from all over the world to begin reconstructing. In their journey to do so, they have also created an educational experience found nowhere else. Natural disasters occur all over the world. Our experiences must be used to help other people learn about disaster prevention. Be sure to check out our "Disaster Prevention Tourism."
