The first train of the newly reopened Rias Line is seen in the city of Kamaishi, Iwate Prefecture, on March 23. (Mainichi)

Train operations resume on Iwate Pref. line damaged by 2011 tsunami   

KAMAISHI, Iwate -- Train operations between Miyako and Kamaishi stations in Iwate Prefecture resumed on March 23 after an eight-year suspension due to heavy damage caused by the tsunami following the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

On the day, operations of the 55.4-kilometer section were transferred from East Japan Railway Co. (JR East) to Sanriku Railway Co. The reconnected 163-kilometer route, which is the longest line operated by a joint public-private venture in Japan, was renamed the Rias Line.

A departure ceremony was held at Kamaishi Station.

"The restoration and revival of railways are indeed symbols of recovery," Reconstruction Minister Watanabe Hiromichi said in a message of encouragement to the area.

One 72-year-old living alone in public housing for disaster survivors said, "I was filled with deep emotion when I saw the train for the first time in eight years."
