Rubato, immediately after the earthquake. Cars were swept from the street into the office.
Rubato, an ambulatory rehabilitation center for persons with disabilities near Sendai Airport in Natori City, Miyagi Prefecture, was the only facility in Natori City providing services for people who have combined intellectual and physical disabilities. When the earthquake hit, all of the clients and staff were able to evacuate safely, but cars and debris were swept into the building, and the facility’s office supplies and vehicles were ruined. After the disaster, the center was unable to resume operations, as there were restrictions on construction in the area.
Rubato restarted operations at a new location. The 30- year-old building has been nicely renovated.
