Nagata Streets : Old Port

Old town Nagata is located near the ocean port, which houses a few fishing boats and is a launch for locals who have personal water craft. Much of this area survived the 1995 earthquake and the many fires that followed immediately after. The mostly wooden buildings and structures, and the very narrow layout of the streets and neighborhoods is considerably different. Most of Nagata now has rather wide streets and spaciously organized neighborhoods - which are safer in the event of a natural disaster or fire and the emergency vehicles have greater access.
