Onagawa & Ishinomaki News
June 2011
July 2011
I will have more news coming soon (hopefully).

The most important news, which can't wait, is that Onagawa decided on September 27, 2012 to combine all three elementary schools into one new elementary school. And the two junior high schools will be combined into one new school. These changes will take place with the start of the new school year in April 2013. The students will remain in the current school buildings for the time being. At some time in the future, when the future number of students and location of the town are better known, the plan is to build two new schools or possibly one combined elementary/junior high school.

I have all news articles since about 1 month after the disaster. I am working on scanning/uploading. The links to articles on this site appear to not be working. I am working on rebuilding these pages. Sorry for the trouble.
