Small world isn't it.

Kinda cool yet kinda sad at the same time.

Wow. Only took 2 years for the debris to wash up onto the shores of US.

Yes, that is some fine wood, and the beams would be beautiful to incorporate in a structure. The wood has stories to tell.

From Southern Oregon, land of build-with-what you-find.

Agreed. Beautiful arch, tragic circumstance. I don't know if I would build something with it, like another poster said, because, honestly, it'd make me sad every time I looked at it.

It could be the beam for the front deck, thus alleviating the need for a porch light!

I understand where those feelings would come from. But I would see it as giving new life and meaning to someone's hard work and love.
I could see it as honoring those of Japan who suffered this tragedy. I would transmute the pain and sadness implied by the piece, by caring.

Actually, using it to construct a monument in memory of the Japan quake and tsunami would be absolutely fitting and beautiful. Total support from me on that idea.

Excellent Idea

Something like that should be used in a memorial-like fashion.
Perhaps returned to Japan for such purposes.

There is a lot of symbolism there to just use for home building.

As for it being radio active, it had a 3-4 day head start on its travels across the ocean. I'd not be concerned about the debris being 'hot;' as the sea would have washed any surface contamination off.

I think the time will come though, when people going to the beach would be prudent to carry a geiger counter.
