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!

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.
