On July 14 and Aug. 9, 1945, the Allied forces launched naval bombardments on a city in Iwate Prefecture in the final stages of the Pacific War, wiping it out in attacks that killed at least 773 people.

Seventy-five years on, memories of the most devastating attacks on the Tohoku region are fading as the number of survivors dwindle. But the city of Kamaishi hopes to keep their stories and the lessons learned alive through its annual exhibition on the attacks.

“Naval bombardments on Kamaishi,” an exhibition held at a city-run museum through Aug. 31, features about 60 exhibits including photographs, short descriptions of historic events and illustrated storyboards to visualize the experiences of war victims.
