The Last Farmer in Fukushima‘s Post-Nuclear Wasteland: VICE INTL (Japan)

12 February 2015

Two years since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant went into full meltdown, and the resulting 20km evacuation zone was enforced, one farmer still remains behind braving high levels of radiation and loneliness to tend to abandoned animals.

His name is Naoto Matsumura, and he is the last man standing in the ghost town of Tomioka. Another farmer’s, Kenji Hasegawa’s town of Iidate was also evacuated due to high levels of radiation, he sought refuge in temporary housing. Faced with a post­nuclear world both these men share brutally honest views on the state of their lives, TEPCO, government inaction and some of the hardest situations they have had to face in the midst of overwhelming radioactivity.

  1. What a brave man. would you believe I have seen fish in the supermarket labelled as coming from Japan, Fukishima???!!!!!
    hard to believe they would label it as such and that people would actually buy fish from Fukishima.
    People must have very very short memories.
