“Kamome” is a 23-minute documentary on Peacock TV that shares the story of how two cities, Rikuzentakata, Japan, and Crescent City, California became forever connected by tragedy, chance, and a 10,000-mile journey across open waters.
On March 11, 2011, a massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami that devasted the city of Rikuzentakata, Japan destroying the community and taking thousands of lives. Two years later, in April of 2013 a mysterious, barnacle-covered boat washed ashore in Crescent City, California. Experts soon discovered that the boat, Kamome, which translates to “seagull” in Japanese, belonged to the students of Takata High School in Rikuzentakata, Japan.
A group of local Crescent City students from Del Norte County High School, worked vigorously with local officials to clean the boat and send it back to Takata High School–a gesture that created an unbreakable bond between the two high schools inspiring a fusion of culture and tradition.
