First of all, I would like to thank JICA, IISEE and
BRI for arranging to visit the areas affected by the Great East Japan and the
Mid Niigata prefecture Earthquake in 2004.
The both group (Seismology and Earthquake engineering) visited the Miyagi prefecture which was affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 2011.

(Egypt, Earthquake Engineering Course)
The three days we spent in Sendai were precious for me and all participants
because of the new experience and knowledge we gained about disaster management
and recovery. We were learnt the importance of preparing a plane for any
anticipated disaster to management the emergency response and hence reduce the
losses in life and damages.

The 2011 Tsunami
Four years and eight months have passed since the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami, but
the aftermath of that devastating disaster can still be found in some areas we

buildings, hotels, housing apartments, sea walls and others.
