Recently I joined a "Volcano Lover's Club" (http://Kazan-net.jp/ Japanese only but many beautiful photos in it.) which mainly exchanges information about volcano through Internet.
We received a mail from Mr.Taniguchi who is a member of this club and is living at Shiogama city, Miyagi Prefecture.
"A short while ago I saw fire works for requiem of victims of tsunami launching from the 5 beaches such as Shiogama-city, Shichigahama-town and Sendai-city. I saw them from the veranda of my house of 11th floor."

"At this time last year I was seeing the fire with explosions of the oil refinery factory at Sendai Port in the darkness and there were so many wrecks of buildings and cars around my house."
(photo is cars that were washed away just under his house)
"At a square in front of a station there was a car carried by tsunami lighting the lamps and blowing horn all the time in pitch-dark of blackout.I cannot forget that sight and sound."
(photo is at the front of Honnshiogama Station)
"Continuing horn sound " As if it was a scream from the dying car or a siren of condolence for victims. I felt this sentence express such miserable situation in one word, so I asked Mr. Taniguchi to use his sentence on my blog. He accepted and sent these photos.
This March, the first anniversary of the Earthquake, the accesses to my blog about Tsunami were a rapid increase from many countries of the world. So I am thinking to write about Tsunami more.
