About Real Fukushima
Come and see today's Fukushima and about nuclear accident. Our standard tour takes you into the current exclusion zone in Futaba and Okuma towns with an official permission, which is a special offer from Real Fukushima, as well as the surrounding areas in Odaka, Namie and Tomioka towns where the evacuation orders have been lifted recently and people are gradually coming back to their home town. The total amount of the radiation exposure through the tour is around 3-5 micro Sievert. You may also encounter and talk to local people who have returned to this area after the 5-6 year evacuation. Our English guide will help you to discover this area, by showing the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami and the evacuation by the explosions of Fukushima Daichi Power Plant in 2011 as well as the ongoing projects and positive movements and hopes to this area for the restoration and recreation. Feel the atmosphere and have first hand experience in this triple disaster area with your own eyes!

Very organized and well prepared. Meeting individual needs, good background information. Knowledgable Japanese tour guide, Karin-san, who speaks perfect English. Comprehensive tours, not to be missed neither by tourists nor by people living in Japan

I really enjoyed this tour. The sites, stories and the privileged access to see first hand the devastation and rebuilding of the area. A beautiful area and very much hope the communities bounce back.

I took the tour in April this year and it was absolutely wonderful. Also it was very educational and gave me a real insight into what those Fukushima residents went through and also the decontamination work in progress. Tour guide Karin was fantastic. It was a lifetime experience I will not forget.

This tour was really wonderful, sad and moving. We went to see everything about the disaster, the sad stories, the powerplants and the empty houses. The power of nature and mankind combined. But we also saw the new Fukushima. The villages that are building up again. Train stations with newly planted flowes, guesthouses openingen and sushi restaurants full with people eating lunch. Lives still goes on. What I especially liked is that I did not get pushed or forced in thoughs or opinions. There was space for all questions I had. The tour exceeded all my expectations. Would definitely recommend everyone to go with this tour. If you have radiation concerns, do not fear, everything is explained and you will be safe. The people from Real Fukushima tours are really nice, email them in advance if you have questions of any kind!

It’s hard to find the superlatives to really describe this tour due to the devastating nature this event had on the Japanese people. It was the most eye opening day of my time in Japan. Calling the viewing of a real life major tragedy the highlight of my trip doesn’t feel entirely right, though in some ways it was. Karin was a fantastic guide, very accommodating and informative. This is the one thing I did in japan that I have been recommending to everyone I speak to. If you get the chance I can’t highly recommend it enough.
