March 11, 2011, marked a triple-disaster, the Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent nuclear power plant accident, for the coastal area of Fukushima prefecture.
About 15,000 people lost their lives due to earthquake and tsunami, and the nuclear power plant accident forced many people to evacuate from their hometown. There are still nearly 40,000 evacuees.
Thanks to decontamination and reconstruction work people can visit parts of the former “exclusion zone” but the recovery is still underway.
Seeing the reality of Fukushima is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about natural disasters, prevention from the disaster, and the importance of the communities.
You will be guided by an experienced guide, who often visits the exclusion zone and thus knows all the details that won’t likely be found in the mass media.
