Return to Fukushima, Big Story CGTN

Published 31 August 2018
March 11, 2011. The day an earthquake and tsunami ravaged the northwestern part of Japan’s Honshu Island; the day the Fukushima nuclear power plant was completely destroyed; and the day the lives of 80,000 people were upside down – with forced evacuations, and no immediate plans for return.
 
Today, after partial decontamination operations, the Japanese government says Fukushima is ready to be inhabited again. But with former residents being encouraged to go back to the former exclusion zone, a new challenge surfaces: how does one start life anew, after being made flee more than half a decade before? How can residents ensure there is no threat to radioactivity in the place they used to call home? How does life get redefined when so much has been erased?
 
Return to Fukushima introduces us to three families exploring the dangers – and desires – of finally going home and explores the difficult journey the residents of Fukushima still have to take.
