Onagawa Station + Yupo'po / 女川駅+ゆぽっぽ


Onagawa Town / 宮城県女川町
2015

This new station building is relocated and built approximately 150m inland from the old station building which was destroyed by the tsunami on March 11th, 2011. The 3-story station building consists of the station, retail shops, and waiting areas on the 1st floor, a municipal hot spring facility on the 2nd floor, and a viewing deck on the 3rd floor. As a symbol of our thoughts and prayers towards the rebuilding efforts of this disaster-stricken area, the design of the roof is based on an image of a bird with its wings spread soaring towards a bright future.

新駅舎は旧駅舎よりも約150m内陸に移設して建設された。駅舎は3階建てで、1階に駅や売店、待合室、2階に町営温泉施設、3階に展望フロアが設けられている。復興に向かって羽ばたいてほしいという思いを込めて、鳥が翼を広げた姿をイメージして屋根をデザインした。
