Entry Description

I have taken this picture around the Fukushima prefecture 2 years after the tsunami and during a nuclear crisis. A lot of people did not leave own house even though radiation level is high for different reasons, some for love of own hometown some for economic reason. The Japanese government changed the legal allowance of radiation exposure from 1 mSv per year to 20 mSv per year to prevent designation of wider mandatory evacuation zone. This is a journey around the Fukushima prefecture.
