The Great East Japan Earthquake mainly in the Tohoku and Kanto districts caused extensive damage to a wide range with the diffusion of radioactive materials by TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.Two months after the earthquake, we entered the afflicted area. And the moment I saw the sight, my legs trembled with the huge magnitude of the disaster.

The city was flushed without a trace by the tsunami, and a number of tanker ships were launched on the land.The railroad turned greatly, the wreckage cars wrecked and burned in flames were stacked up.In addition to the damage caused by the earthquake, evacuation due to radioactive contamination began in Fukushima. On the way from Minamisoma city to the nuclear plant where there was an accident, both cars and people were gone from the town.
