Kibi Temple (on 24 December 2018)

The journey of Fukuyama and Kurashiki pilgrimage is finally the endgame.

Then, we moved to Kibi-ji temple in Mabei town, Kurashiki City.

The area which was the most damaged in West Japan torrential rains last year speaking of Mabei town.

I was not going to see onlooker, but
When you enter Mabei town, you still have traces of damage
It came here and there and it looked unpleasant.

The embankment of Odagawa was also collapse.

The high-beam river of the first class river rises, and the water of Odagawa of the tributary
Because it caused the back water phenomenon that can not be joined smoothly,
The dike is collapse in Odagawa and eight tributaries in the branch.

One-third of the town was submerged, and about 4,600 houses were flooded.

After all, the damage of Mabei town became big
Not only the heavy rain but also the discharge of the dam was caused.

Disasters ceased.

Such a house and the building which seems to be a coffee shop
It is not a situation where you can live very much now.

The houses in the back are open and the windows and doors are open.
People don’t seem to live there.

There was a signboard of the Manbei town, too, in the town.
I want you to regain your old life as soon as possible.
