A participant demonstrates a hand-made prop of a radioactive detector during a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. convention in Moscow, Russia, April 2, 2016. A game known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R., named after a popular computer shooter, is fast winning the minds of intellectuals across the former Soviet Union who take on roles of mutants, zombies and warriors on unfinished construction sites. As the 30th anniversary of the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl is marked on April 26, enacting a post-apocalyptic world is a philosophy that warns of the perils of uncontrolled use of nuclear power, the game's enthusiasts claim.

79-year-old Shouhei Nomura checks radiation levels close to the protesters' campsite near Kyushu Electric Power's Sendai nuclear power station in Satsumasendai, Kagoshima prefecture, Japan, August 8, 2015. Japan is due to switch on a nuclear reactor for the first time in nearly two years as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe seeks to reassure a nervous public that tougher standards mean the sector is now safe after the Fukushima disaster in 2011. The head of Japan's atomic watchdog has said that the new safety regime meant a repeat of the Fukushima disaster would not happen, but protesters outside the Sendai plant are not convinced.

A girl runs past a geiger counter, measuring a radiation level of 0.122 microsievert per hour, upon her arrival at the Emporium kindergarten in Koriyama, west of the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Fukushima prefecture February 28, 2014. March 11 marks the third anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. In Koriyama, a short drive from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, the city recommended shortly after the disaster that children up to two years old not spend more than 15 minutes outside each day. Those aged 3 to 5 should limit their outdoor time to 30 minutes or less. The limits were lifted last year, but many kindergartens and nursery schools continue to obey them even now in line with the wishes of worried parents. An annual survey by the Fukushima prefecture Board of Education found that children in Fukushima weighed more than the national average in virtually every age group. The cause seems to be a lack of exercise and outdoor activity. Picture taken February 28, 2014. REUTERS/Toru Hanai (JAPAN - Tags: DISASTER EDUCATION ENVIRONMENT HEALTH)

Asked about Olympic games in Tokyo 2020, Shuhu said "I think it's good we will have the Olympic Games. In seven years things will be cleaner around here. And fixed, I hope."

Japan approved on October 30, 2013 a plan by TEPCO to extract thousands of nuclear fuel rods from the fuel pool of the No. 4 reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Containing radiation equivalent to 14,000 times the amount released in the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima 68 years ago, more than 1,300 used fuel rod assemblies packed tightly together need to be removed from a building that is vulnerable to collapse, should another large earthquake hit the area.

Kanno, who was evacuated after the disaster at Daiichi plant in 2011 with rest of people from Minamitsushima, died in temporary accommodation in May this year two weeks short of her 100th birthday. Former residents of evacuated towns can visit their homes once a month with special permissions but are not allowed to stay overnight inside the exclusion zone. A total of 160,000 people were ordered to leave their homes around Daiichi plant after the government announced the evacuation following the nuclear disaster in March 2011.

A Geiger counter reads 20.97 microsieverts per hour as a volunteer (unseen) checks for "hot spots" during a workshop to inform the local residents on how to clean up radioactive contamination in Fukushima, northern Japan February 4, 2012. Last summer, Zen priest Koyu Abe grew and distributed sunflowers and other plants, such as field mustard and amaranthus, in an effort to lighten the impact of the radiation and cheer local residents. Now he is trading his ceremonial robes for a protective mask, working with volunteers to track down lingering pockets of radiation and cleaning them up. Picture taken February 4, 2012.

A 9.0-magnitude earthquake and massive tsunami on March 11, 2011 triggered the world's worst nuclear accident in 25 years and forced residents around Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to flee, leaving behind in many cases their household belongings or pets. The triple whammy is still forcing more than 150,000 people from Fukushima prefecture to take refuge, nearly half of them from the no-go zone. Picture taken January 28, 2012.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said on July 19 that the government will boost its inspections for contamination by testing all beef cattle from evacuation areas around the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant for radiation as well as inspecting all farms in the prefecture. Zensho is conducting radiation checks on all of its domestic beef, shipped from 14 prefectures to ensure food safety. The company has been conducting checks from July 20, with no reported case of radiation contaminated beef, according to the company spokesperson. REUTERS/Yuriko Nakao (JAPAN - Tags: POLITICS FOOD)

Mito's farm has been throwing away about 1,200 litres of fresh milk daily and he has submitted milk samples to the government twice already, but have yet to receive a response as to whether they will be allowed to sell their milk since shipments of unprocessed milk . Generally, people are exposed to about 1 to 10 millisieverts of radiation a year from natural background radiation, caused by radioactive substances in the air and soil.

Residents of a Japanese village well-outside of an evacuation zone set around a crippled nuclear power plant have been told to prepare to be evacuated, a local official said on Monday. The monitor indicates 1.26 microsieverts per hour.
