Japanese Tsunami Dock Before and After

Japanese Tsunami Dock

When the dock first washed ashore on Agate Beach with the Japanese plaque on it County Commissioner Terry Thompson took a picture of the plaque to a Japanese interpreter. He had a letter sent to the Mayor of Misawa letting him know that the dock had washed ashore in Oregon and asked for information about the dock. He sent the letter back both in Japanese, which is pictured below along with many pictures of the area before and after the tsunami. A link to the County’s website is posted on the County¬†icon that will direct you to the interpreted letter and more photos. Enjoy!
