Koyu Abe, a Zen priest, stands against a backdrop of a view of Fukushima city near his Joenji temple in Fukushima, northern Japan August 5, 2011. At the temple, thousands of sunflowers have been planted to help fight the radiation. "It is as if an invisible snow had fallen on Fukushima and continued to fall, covering the area," said Abe. Sunflowers were used near Chernobyl after the 1986 nuclear accident to extract radioactive caesium from contaminated ponds nearby.
