Broken lives of Fukushima - 29 Jan 2014
In 2011 a massive earthquake and tsunami wrecked the Fukushima nuclear plant, resulting in a meltdown that became the world's worst atomic crisis in 25 years. About 160,000 people living near the plant were ordered to move out and the government established a 20-km compulsory evacuation zone. The operator of the plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co, is struggling to contain contaminated water at the site 240 km north of Tokyo. There have been multiple leaks and glitches over the last two and a half years.

Mieko Okubo, 59, poses with a portrait of her father-in-law Fumio Okubo in their house where he committed suicide in the evacuated town of Iitate in Fukushima prefecture September 18, 2013. Fumio, a 102 year old farmer hanged himself in the house he lived in all his life after authorities ordered evacuation from the area following the nuclear disaster at the tsunami-crippled Daiichi power plant. Mieko, who lives outside the exclusion zone, comes back every other day to feed Fumio's dog and clean the house. Asked about Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020, Mieko said: "Honestly? They didn't have to run for Olympic games this time. They can spend that money on Fukushima. Many of my friends say the same - we are afraid to be forgotten because of the Olympics" REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (JAPAN - Tags: DISASTER)

Kenichi Sato, 35, holds a football that he kept from his high school days at his abandoned home during a visit back in Namie September 14, 2013. Sato is afraid the ball is contaminated with radiation and will leave it in his home in the evacuated town of Namie that he visits with special permission once a month. Asked about Olympic games in Tokyo 2020, Kenichi and his wife Ryoko said "In devastated areas, people are depressed. So, if a Japanese wins a gold medal, that will give more power to the people. But, at the same time they hope all the money won't be spent in Tokyo but on reconstruction in Fukushima also." REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (JAPAN - Tags: DISASTER)

The non-profit organization offers free thyroid examination for children from Fukushima area. As the World Health Organisation (WHO) says children in Fukushima may have a higher risk of developing thyroid cancer after the Daiichi nuclear disaster two years ago, mothers in Fukushima worry that local health authorities are not doing enough. Asked about Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020, Suzuki said "I can say only one word - we, in Fukushima, will be forgotten. We should have not done something like this. Government is out of their mind."

Almost all the beaches in Fukushima prefectures remain closed since March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster that triggered the world's worst nuclear disaster in 25 years.

Big plastic bags containing radiated soil, leaves and debris from the decontamination operation are dumped at a tennis court at a sports park in Naraha town, which is inside the formerly no-go zone of a 20 km (12 mile) radius around the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant September 21, 2013. The most ambitious radiation clean-up ever attempted has proved costly, complex and time-consuming since the Japanese government began it more than two years ago in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown. It may also fail. There is also the problem of storage. Most of the contaminated soil and leaves remain piled up in driveways and empty lots because of fierce opposition from local communities to storing it in one place until the Ministry of Environment secures a central site that could hold it for the longer term.

The level of radiation is seen near the abandoned civic centre at the tsunami destroyed coastal area of the evacuated town of Namie in Fukushima prefecture, only some 6 km (4 miles) from the crippled Daiichi power plant September 15, 2013. Namie's more than 20,000 former residents 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.

Officials measure the radiation level outside a shop in the evacuated town of Iitate in Fukushima prefecture September 18, 2013. 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. In 2011 a massive earthquake and tsunami wrecked the Fukushima nuclear plant, resulting in a meltdown that became the world's worst atomic crisis in 25 years. About 160,000 people living near the plant were ordered to move out and the government established a 20-km compulsory evacuation zone. The operator of the plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co, is struggling to contain contaminated water at the site 240 km north of Tokyo. There have been multiple leaks and glitches over the last two and a half years. Picture taken September 18, 2013.

Despite government orders, Matsumura never left and now lives alone inside of the nuclear exclusion zone with his 50 cows, two cats, a dog, a pony horse and two ostriches after the disaster forced about 160,000 people to flee their homes. He has made it his mission to take care of those animals left behind, even if they no longer can be sold to a market due to their exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation.

A vendor offers fish for sale at a market in the Iwaki town, south of the tsunami-crippled Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture September 19, 2013. Before the nuclear disaster, more than half of fish offered at the market was from local fishermen, now none of it comes from the Fukushima prefecture. Commercial fishing has been banned near the tsunami-crippled nuclear complex since the March 2011 tsunami and earthquake. The only fishing that still takes place is for contamination research, and is carried out by small-scale fishermen contracted by the government. Picture taken September 19, 2013.

Only a small part of boat's catch will be used to test for radioactive contamination in the waters near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility, while the rest will be thrown back into the ocean.

Before the disaster they had eight cows but the number now grew to 30. "Cows are my family. I don't want to kill them, I don't know what to do", said Norobu.

Keigo Sakamoto, 58, holds Atom, one of his 21 dogs and over 500 animals he keeps at his home, in the exclusion zone near Naraha in Fukushima prefecture September 17, 2013. Sakamoto, a former caregiver and farmer who refused to leave the exclusion zone around the crippled Daiichi nuclear power plant, decided to name his dog Atom because it was born just before the 2011 disaster. With donations and support from outside Fukushima, Sakamoto lives with his animals of which many were abandoned by previous owners as they left the exclusion zone. Picture taken September 17, 2013.

The non-profit organization offers free thyroid examination for children from Fukushima area. As the World Health Organisation (WHO) says children in Fukushima may have a higher risk of developing thyroid cancer after the Daiichi nuclear disaster two years ago, mothers in Fukushima worry that local health authorities are not doing enough.
