We can see a vending machine, brought inland by the tsunami, in an abandoned rice field.
It’s quite hard to understand how the lump of iron was carried from downtown, but this fact silently tells us the fear of the massive tsunami.



Today is just 5 years since the unforgettable day

We know that looking back at the miserable past is painful and sad, but it’s necessary to remind something precious, and prepare for better future.
Let’s see how Fukushima was like after the unprecedented earthquake.

Even now after 5 years, many people who were related with the disaster struggle to live in not completely safe place.

But Fukushima has got the beauty back with strong will day by day, and the positive attitude inspires people over Japan.
