Travel Guide - Miracle Pine Tree

InformationInformation

The lone pine tree is called "Miracle Pine Tree" because it was the only one left standing after the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami that swept nearly 70,000 pine trees in the famed Takata Matsubara pine forest. However, the survived 270-year-old tree was later found to be dying because the salt water left in the ground by the tsunami damaged its root and leaf system, and the local government decided to dissect the tree into several parts for anti-decay treatment to keep it standing as a symbol of hope for reconstruction and the resiliency of survivors.
