The Hamagurihama Project came about as a result of the 3.11 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Kameyama Sensei, resident of the village started the project as a way to save the village from falling into obscurity. Now, instead of a site reflecting of the disaster, Hamagurihama is a place people can come to reflect on the event and their lives, as well as a learn and practice the old ways of Japan. The Hamagurihama Project is a beautiful story of the strength of the human character in the face of great tragedy.
