What happens to a town that has been abandoned for seven years after a nuclear meltdown? Greenpeace took former residents and a 360-degree camera into the radiation zone north of Fukushima to mark the anniversary of the disaster. The Fukushima Daiichi plant was damaged by a tsunami triggered by a magnitude-9 earthquake on the afternoon of 11 March 2011. The tsunami killed almost 19,000 people along the north-east coast of Japan and forced more than 150,000 others living near the plant to flee radiation. Some of the evacuated neighbourhoods are still deemed too dangerous for former residents to go back.

Well tough luck most of us don’t have a house regardless of radiation. Put up with it fully, live with it, thank you are still alive or curse that you are lol

This should be the location for the meeting between KIm Jong-un and the orange Idi Amin, Mr. Trump.

William Dalziel says:

Whilst the Daiichi disaster of 2011 continues to impact thousands of people, with many still displaced, it's important to note that the evacuation order on the town in this video (Namie) was lifted in April 2017. Although the population of the town is only a fraction of what it once was, concerted efforts to rebuild the community should be acknowledged.
