I heard a lot about the concept of this garden and the roses at the time. I was really looking forward to seeing what happened to this garden from that time. I couldn't come after the disaster, but I suddenly thought about it today and came here again with the 20-year-old son. I will come again when the flowers and vegetation in the garden are overgrown!"

The Wider Image: The man who saves forgotten cats in Fukushima's nuclear zone
Sakae Kato holds Mokkun, a rescued cat, while an animal rescue activist applies an ointment onto its mouth at Kato's home, in a restricted zone in Namie, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, February 21, 2021. Kato looks after 41 cats in his home and another empty building on his property. A decade ago, he stayed behind to rescue cats abandoned by neighbours who fled the radiation clouds belching from the nearby Fukushima nuclear plant. He won't leave. "I want to make sure I am here to take care of the last one," Kato said. "After that I want to die, whether that be a day or hour later."

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.
