Rikuzentakata, February 24 2012 - Takata-Matsubara is a two-kilometre stretch of shoreline that was lined with approximately 70,000 pine trees. In 1927 it was selected as one of the 100 Landscapes of Japan (Shōwa era) and in 1940 it was designated a Place of Scenic Beauty. Only one pine tree remains after the tsunami hit the city on March 11 2011. The rest of the beach is made of roots
