Fukushima: Alone in a Nuclear Zone
Naoto Matsumara is the only resident living in the 20km exclusion zone around Fukushima nuclear power plant. He has refused the government’s plea to leave his hometown of Tomioka as he vows to take care of the animals left behind. The high levels of radiation meant that all 16,000 residents were evacuated in 2011 when the earthquake caused a nuclear meltdown at the nearby power plant. A year on, Naoto still vows to stay on.
