Five-Year Record(Digest of interim report)
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the cooperation and support that Soma City has received during the past five years.
In the disruption that has continued since the earthquake and tsunami, all local residents, including those whose homes and livelihoods were ruined by the disaster, have steadfastly endured inconvenience and anxiety: we have gone forward by focusing our energy on the next step of recovery. In the initial response, for the first two weeks of the emergency, without sleep, many people tirelessly worked around the clock. In particular, I bow my head to those resolute citizens and stalwart city officials.
Now, at the pivotal point of the fifth year following the disaster, as a digest version of the interim report, which may be subject to revision, this publication presents a record of happenings and actions since March 11, 2011.
