Steps toward Recovery and Restoration: Accelerating Restoration on the Back of Universal Support (October 2011)

We have continued to receive a number of kind offers of assistance both from in Japan and abroad. On the back of such support, we are determined to take steps forward together, in order to regain our hometown, “Sendai, the City of Trees” and to create a city full of hope—one that is more safe and secure than ever before.

bj-League opening home game for the Sendai 89ERS

Sendai 89ers's play

In the bj-League, the Sendai 89ERS faced this season’s opening game against the Akita Northern Happinets at Sendai Gymnasium (Taihaku Ward). Although the 89ERS lost the game 71 to 80, this Tohoku Darby game attracted more than 5,000 boosters (fans) who warmly cheered on the local players.Due to the impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake, the 89ERS discontinued their activities during the previous season and seven Japanese players were loaned to other teams. As the team’s survival was threatened, fans worked hard to collect more than 20,000 signatures that saw the team continue amid hardship.

All the players loaned to other teams moved back to the 89ERS this season. We are convinced that the players who overcame the disaster will inspire us with their great performances on the field.

The City of Sendai has been working on the establishment of disaster debris collection sites in three locations in Gamo (Miyagino Ward), Arahama (Wakabayashi Ward) and Ido (Wakabayashi Ward) along with the construction of temporary incinerators at these collection sites. On October 1, the incineration disposal of incombustible materials such as unrecyclable wood debris, etc. started at the Gamo and Ido collection sites.
By regularly measuring the amount of dioxin-containing materials and radiation, we will continue to work on adequate disposal and disposal of incinerated ash by landfill. 
We plan to treat 480 tons of disaster debris per day using three incinerators including the one in Arahama which will start operating in December, with the aim of completing work by the end of fiscal 2013.
