In 2011 Japan was devastated by a massive tsunami disaster, killing about 20,000 people and displacing hundreds of thousands more.
After that, the Japanese Government has been building a very high and extremely long sea wall to prevent future tsunami disasters.
Average height is 15m and the wall will be 400 km long when finished. Local people can no longer see the beautiful ocean scenery.
Government has chosen to combat nature with human-made barriers.
But the local people want to live with nature.
Grief changes shape, but it never ends. But every day we strive to embrace a hopeful, peaceful life.
This sea wall might be the symbol of hope or despair – depending on your point of view.
