Masahiro Sugawara - Assistant Manager, Project Coordination Division, Construction Department, Kesennuma City

In April 2013, Masahiro was assigned to the newly created Department of Construction Planning & Coordination, coordinating recovery and restoration projects which are moving from the planning phase to implementation. At the time of the earthquake and tsunami, Masahiro was working in Personnel in the General Affairs Department for the city of Kesennuma. Because of the enormous scale of the disaster, and the city’s difficulty dealing with it due to conflicts in jurisdiction, the city accepted managers, administrators, and support staff from many municipalities and organizations from all over the country and placed them in shelters and the morgue.
