女川駅オープニングセレモニーが開催されました

2015年3月21日


2011年に発生した東日本大震災によって流されたJR女川駅と女川町温泉温浴施設「ゆぽっぽ」。
この二つの施設を合築した建物のオープニングセレモニーが開催されました。

Onagawa Station and a public bath were swept away by the tsunami in 2011.
The new building was designed to contain the two facilities, and its opening ceremony was held on 21 March, 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階に舎町営温泉施設、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。
