ILC NEWS from Tohoku

-brought to you by the Tohoku ILC Promotion Council-

Here's the latest news about the local effort for the ILC in Tohoku (northeastern Japan)
Taking a Rest at a Roadside Station
It goes without saying that Japanese public transport is top-notch, from speedy bullet trains to clean and reliable subways and local trains. However, if you don’t want to be at the mercy of a public transit schedule, or would like to go a bit further off the beaten path, driving is the way to go. This goes double for Iwate, where spectacular scenery and a relatively lower population density make road trips a great option.

The process of getting a Japanese driver’s license, or an international driver’s permit, varies quite a lot case by case, so I won’t get into it here – perhaps a future article will cover it. In the meantime, I want to talk about the practical matter of finding a spot to rest on your journey.

Creating the Tohoku House,
                                 ten years after the disaster

2021 marks ten years since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Since then, many have helped with saving others, supplying food and water, and keeping the affected areas in their hearts.

The View from TOHOKU & NIIGATA
This original work of TOHOKU HOUSE was produced by WOW who was born in Sendai and is active around the world. Images with the theme of "the four seasons", such as the natural scenery of Tohoku and Niigata and summer festival images that make full use of motion graphics (CG), will be screened on a huge 180-degree panoramic screen. This is the first ambitious work to challenge the technologies by mounting a 360-degree camera on a large drone to shoot landscapes and synthesizing (stitching) multiple images into 180-degree images.
