The Wider Image: The man who saves forgotten cats in Fukushima's nuclear zone
A bamboo tree grows inside Hisae Unuma's collapsing home that she lived in before being evacuated, which is 2.5 km away from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, in a restricted zone in Futaba, Fukushima prefecture, Japan, February 23, 2021. Unuma fled as the cooling system at Tokyo Electric Power Co's nuclear plant failed and its reactors began to melt down. Her home withstood the earthquake a decade ago but is now close to collapsing after years of being battered by wind, rain and snow. "I'm surprised it's still standing," she said.

The Wider Image: The man who saves forgotten cats in Fukushima's nuclear zone
Hisae Unuma wears a protective suit as she walks past an incinerator used to burn debris collected in the Fukushima clean up, which was built in a rural village near Unuma's collapsing home where she lived before being evacuated, in a restricted zone in Futaba, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, February 23, 2021. Unuma, who fled as the cooling system at Tokyo Electric Power Co's nuclear plant 2.5 km away failed and its reactors began to melt down, won't return even if the government scrapes the radioactive soil off her fields. Radiation levels around her house are around 20 times the background level in Tokyo, according to a dosimeter reading carried out by Reuters. Only the removal of Fukushima's radioactive cores will make her feel safe, a task that will take decades to complete. "Never mind the threat from earthquakes, those reactors could blow if someone dropped a tool in the wrong place," she said. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "FUKUSHIMA KYUNG-HOON" FOR THIS STORY.
