Special hometown Kirikiri

2013年08月08日 23:25

My hometown is Kirikiri, Ozuchi town, Iwate prefecture.

Ozuchi town is divided into several districts. Kirikiri is one of them. There are about 800 houses and 2,000 people live inside. This is quite small but very nice district. Kirikiri has a beautiful beach, very good seafood, and relaxing atmosphere. I love my hometown.

Kirikiri was known to many Japanese people in the 70's. The novel the title of which was "Kirikiri-Jin" was written by the famous novelist called "Hisashi Inoue". The story was about; The people who lived in this village declared independence from the Japanese government suddenly!

This village is situated in the country side of Japan, the people of this village did not like the sloppiness of the Japanese government, and therefore declared independence. The novel was very interesting and became very famous making this little village of Kirikiri very well known. I have heard from my parents that many tourist came especially to see this village.




Kirikiri was damaged by 3.11 great tsunami same as other seaside cities. It was a very hard situation, but the people were very brave and did not give up easily. They did their best, without the help of the Japanese government.

Even though the convenience-store was damaged, the manager would provide food for the people who had been evacuated. Although the shovels were damaged by the tsunami, the carpenters began to clear the roads with only one shovel and some other basics tools.

It was very unfortunate that both the gas stations were broken down, but it did not kill this one persons; courage to get the oil out from the underground tanks with a single hand pump made by himself. They used this oil to give warmth to the people in the shelter.

Finally when the government people came to this little village after their help for the first time, they were amazed at all these activities. It was as if, the story in the novel had become a reality. Therefore this little Kirikiri who are very brave, very strong with a very sound mind to accept and face everything and anything happily attracted attention once again in the 70's.
