Five years after Fukushima

On March 11, 2011, Japan was struck by the most violent earthquake it had ever experienced. A huge tsunami and a nuclear disaster at the Fukushima power station in the northeast of Japan followed. The toll was very heavy: 18 000 casualties, entire cities destroyed, high level of radioactivity and contaminated water. Five years after, Japan is rebuilding itself, even though Fukushima and other cities in the northeast remain ghost towns. In the meanwhile, the country continues its return to nuclear power and restarts progressively reactors despite the opposition of a large part of the population.
