▶Watch Fukushima daiichi nuclear powerplant
We will watch the plant from the northern shore, which is 1.5 km away from the plant. Chimneys and buildings can be seen from there. In case of fog, it could be difficult to see the plant from there.
▶Walk around devastated town:
We will visit the center of Namie city which is 2 Km away from the plant and it was a “No-habitat zone” until 2017. You can walk around freely there.
We will also visit a tsunami disaster-struck area, which has a damaged elementary school.
People started to return to their homes, but they are still less than 10% of the original population. Please feel and know what is going on in Fukushima by themselves.
▶Talk session with a survivor. Talk and discuss with local people:
We will have a meeting with a survivor of the nuclear power plant accident in 2011 in Odaka district of MinamiSoma city (Approximately 10 Km away from the plant).
A Japanese-English interpreter will be with you. You can talk with him / her to listen to the authentic stories.
Odaka district had a population of 13.000 before the accident and people were prohibited from living there until August 2016. The current population is approximately 2.000. Most of the citizens evacuated to outside of the town and never come back. However, local people started to work for reconstruction and have kept living there.
▶About Kibou no Bokujo (The farm of hope)
There is a farm in a hazard area (20km area) of Fukushima to save abandoned lives. It is called Kibou no Bokujo (The farm of hope), run by Mr. Yoshizawa. He has been keeping around a hundred cows since the nuclear power plant accident for “remaining preserving the evidence of the nuclear power plant accident. Most of the livestock was killed after the accident by the government and you will never know how radioactive pollution affects living things. He still keeps his cows as the evidence of the nuclear power plant accident”. In his farm, cattle are starting to have strange symptoms and die one after one. We can still see cows in his farm.
