Five public beaches in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture, including two which had planned to resume operation for the first time in a decade since they were swept away by the March 2011 earthquake-triggered tsunami, will not open this summer to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The two beaches, Arahama and Kugunarihama, are located in a residential district where many elderly people live, prompting concerns that visitors from within and outside of the prefecture may cause the virus to spread.
