n industrial-scale conveyor belt stretching three kilometers is transporting thousands of tons of clay from a mountainside to the lowland of this tsunami-stricken city.
The massive amount of clay will be used to raise the ground level in commercial and residential areas to help withstand a future tsunami.
Each day the conveyor belt shifts the equivalent of 20,000 cubic meters of clay, enough to fill 4,000 10-ton trucks.
A total amount of clay equal to four times the volume of Tokyo Dome is set to be moved by May 2015.
