仙台空港は、海のすぐ近くにあり、飛行機の大半は海の方から進入して着陸します。
飛行機が頭上近くを飛んでいく時、みんな思わず立ち止まって眺めてしまいますよね :-)
そんな場所にキャッシュを設置してみました。
キャッシュを探しながら飛んでくる飛行機も楽しんで下さい。

Just after one year from 311/2011, today I’ve re-set container and would re-start this cache proudly. Still many things are not recovered yet, but somehow we are forwarding step by step. We wants to say many thanks all of your supports/helps/kinds!!
Actually I still wishing that the original container is existing under GZ. Therefore let me say this is a extra cache and let’s try to dig a GZ if you have time ;)

Regarding the re-installed cache, I got great support from Robert Hill who is my great geofriend from MiGO (visit link) THANK YOU!
And I also wanted to say thanks to worldwide geocachers supports through the PodCacher.
I received items trough the Robert then put them into the re-installed container this time!
I also put some prize into the cache to your visit instead of my thanks. Please take one item if still there ;)

Sorry to my late update. Let me tell you recent status.
Approx. 1 month later from March/11/2011 Earthquake and Tsunami, I tried to go GZ.

pictures (before) - (visit link)
pictures (after) - (visit link)

Actually I little bit expected that the container still exist at GZ.
Because originally the container set at the ground then put big stone on the container, therefore I expected possibly container will not moved by Tsunami but probably something wreckage or sands will cover the container.

When I closing to the point by car, I felt "something simple..". but I understood that feeling comes from mismatching with the my memories because almost trees goes away by Tsunami.

After stopped car at roadside, I approach to GZ through the small road of the aircraft approach lighting system.
No, I should say more correctly. It WAS small road of the aircraft approach lighting system.

Around GZ, looks like tsunami transferred huge sands and piled it here therefore the view and terrain completely changed.
So I couldn't have confidence where is exact point...
But I tried to dig the ground at GZ.
During this, I remembered one news that saying the ground now moved several meters caused by quite big earthquake.
So possibly previous coordinate couldn't trust...
And many fallen tree roots disturbed my digging...

Approx. 30 minutes, I tried but I finally stopped and gave up to find original container.
Probably I'll try again when I coming here to maintain the cache.
But now I think it to be patient my work ;)
And I also think future my cache visitors will possibly found original container (it will be one of surprise ;))

Regarding the re-starting this cache, I was thinking what should I do because the terrain and view is completely changed from before.
Now blind trees goes away but these recovery needs long time...
As I decided to re-set the container anyway even it needs to change the terrain, difficulty or etc. little bit.

I planned to put in something several prize into the cache for the re-started cache visitors.
That preparation time little bit needed, so I plan to re-start this cache around Autumn 2011.
Sorry for inconvenience but please please wait little more.

My buddy yattunn who is a member of Japanese geocaching community proposed to make a souvenir. I agreed and wanted to support this because I also wanted to say thanks for visiting Japan caches even in this situation! If you also agree, please give your support.
Here is a message from yattunn,

Thanks so much for worrying on Japan and Japanese cachers. We want to make a souvenir of "Japan relief" as our "pray for Japan" and "thanks for visit Japan". If you could agree, we are
waiting for your vote. (visit link)
Thanks

I strongly wanted to say many thanks to your warm wishes! I and my family are safe! I'm live in south Sendai city therefore my home also had no damage fortunately. Running water doesn't stopped but electricity was stopped after earthquake. Somehow power is recovered now therefore my location getting return to normal slowly. My parents are also safe but their home had damaged by Tsunami. Family home still standing but Tsunami flooded above floor level... Their home located around middle between this cache and my home. (This cache is ocean side and my home is inland side) For the moment, I couldn't reach to GZ therefore let me disable this cache temporary. I'll not archive this cache because I feel so much for this my first hidden cache. Even if container muggled by pacific ocean, I'll set container again!!
