14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Passing through Michinoku Village

This is Michinoku Village in Kitakami, Fukushima. I visited Tohoku every year after the earthquake and after three years, I came to this village during Golden Week. I wanted to see the sakura, but not only did I see that, I saw a village with beautiful straw houses.
