I've took part at their tour in Fukushima disaster area and I found the tour really interesting with a great balance of the different aspect.
The guide Takuto know a lot about the area and was very kind and patient and explain us a lot of interesing things.
We visited two town with a similar but different story and future and we talked with locals that show us their different poin of view, so we can collect many impressions, see with our own eyes that area and create a new personal idea.
I really reccomend this tour to everyone!

The guide was very informative which made me feeling safe the entire time. I liked the addition of other people from the area who told us about how their lives have changed since the disaster. The abandoned towns were so interesting. Everything was either frozen in time from the earthquake with the dishes still spilled off shelves, or taken back by nature. It was also nice though to see the community being rebuilt.

I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who likes to go a bit off the beaten path, or even those who want an excuse to get out of Tokyo for the day and see the Japanese countryside. Make sure to try one of the peaches, the Fukushima prefecture is well known for them!

Had a great 2 days exploring Fukushima with JWT. The staff were very friendly. It was great to hear the first-hand stories of the people who experienced it.

I showed up for this tour not knowing what to expect, and my only regret is not signing up for this sooner. The long drive to Fukushima didn’t seem long as the guide provided us with tons of information, and even shared with us her personal story and why contributing to the recovery of Fukushima is important to her. The others on this tour were all really interesting people from all over the world, and the conversation between us and the guide flowed effortlessly until we arrived to Fukushima. We had the opportunity to hear first-hand stories from the world’s most interesting farmer and a resident of Tamioka, who’s story really touches you to the core. This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime, and it’s one of the most valuable experiences that I’ve had in japan so far.

This experience was very impressive. IT was so eye opening. You really do not understand the impact from just watching the news. When you arrive at these locations you can almost take yourself to those moments.

You hear some first hand stories from locals, the farmer fellow is a bit of a nut job hahha, but it was still worth hearing his story.

My wife and I really recommend it.

We've all heard a lot of things about Fukushima and its nuclear plant, mostly negative news that created assumptions which in most cases are wrong. I took this tour to visit the area affected by the 2011 tsunami and nuclear disaster, learn firsthand about the current situation and see the difficulties local people are dealing with. The tour totally met my expectations. We didn't only visited several relevant places, but also got information about the nuclear accident and radioactivity in general, talked to local people, and even checked radiation levels during the whole visit, making it a very valuable experience. I highly recommend this tour to those interested in learning about the aftermath of nuclear accident and Fukushima's fight to rise from it.

What is the impression of Fukushima for everyone? Earthquake? Disaster area? Radiation pollution or dangerous place? The news about Fukushima is innumerable on the internet, but can you distinguish between what is true and false just from the picture on the internet? I don't think I can. So, I decide to use my own eyes and look at the real environment through my own experience and get the answer.

This tour really have an impact on me and let me understand more about Fukushima and how difficult they are facing at. I am highly recommend this tour to everyone, and our guide, Takuto San, really did a great job and thank you very much.

I joined the Fukushima tour in September 2018. I have to say this is one of the most overwhelming experiences I’ve ever had. The tour shows different sides of the story and you get to meet locals that have now returned to the area or that have never left. They tell their stories and you get to ask them questions as well. Seeing the scale of the destruction is incredible. It’s a sad place but you also see how they are working really hard to clean it up as best as they can to make it safe for more people to return.

Taku is an excellent tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the disaster that took place, and he knows the locals you meet well. He’s also just a really friendly guy. I am definitely coming back in the future to take the tour again and see more of this incredible place.

I took part in this tour and thankful for my daily life.I thought that I should do my best to do what I can.
Takuto of the tour guide was rich in knowledge and excellent. I saw all the important sights and learned a lot about them.

In Fukushima, there were places where have not been changed for 7 years.
I understood how the disasters were terrible and changed Fukushima.

On the other hand, we were able to hear strong project which are going towards to the future.
The tour itself is attractive and sad, but absolutely worthwhile tour. I strongly recommend it.

I never forget this experience! I joined the tour in Feb, and I could visit 3 areas. The most impressed things for me was "Tsunami" area. There were nothing, except people's memory.
I understand that the Fukushima disaster area have been changed by earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear accident seriously.
However, I could hear very strong story in Fukushima. Some of them have been acting for own future.
After this tour, I faced to myself, and think my life.
I recommned this tour for everyone.
