A Japanese journalist, Tetsuo Jimbo, ventured through the Fukushima nuclear reactor evacuation zone last week filing the above video report. The video is in Japanese with English subtitles.
On March 12th, the Japanese government issued a mandatory evacuation for the residents living within a 20 kilometer radius of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant that was hobbled by the devastating tsunami that followed the powerful 9.0 earthquake that struck the northeastern part of Honshu. The video captures a surreal scene of towns largely devoid of life apart from dogs abandoned by their owners.
