Wonderful tour experiencing what has actually occurred, what are currently going on in Fukushima since the incidents. I went far beyond my expectation and could not be better. The well-experienced tour guide gave us much insight on top of what we saw and hear there. The 3-hour tour of damaged nuclear power plant which is not currently open for public would particularly be a highlight of this tour. Directly guided by staff of the power company with a Geiger counter hung from the neck of each one. Tours go around the area show us the unmanageable power of Tsunami and seriousness of the radioactive contamination.

This trip was an opportunity to remind me of what I had forgotten over time. In the affected areas, there are still some areas where time has stopped, but there are also areas where redevelopment is steadily progressing after being cleared up without a trace, which made me think about what reconstruction means. I was pleased to see that the cleanup process has progressed to the point where the general public can step into the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, but the fact that there is no foreseeable future for the disposal of fuel debris, contaminated soil, and contaminated water left me feeling uneasy. I spent a very fulfilling time as a learning trip where I could see with my own eyes the facts that are not reported in the media.

A true learning experience. Although it may feel overwhelming to learn the reality of the life post-nuclear disaster, it felt crucial to see and learn with their own senses about what and how it happened, and what is happening today and on-wards. A lot to take in indeed, but there were some joyful moments interacting with local people as well as being able to enjoy local delicacies.

This tour was incredibly well organized and provided us diverse experiences in the disaster area. One of the highlights and what you could not expect in any other tour was visiting inside the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant site under special safety and privacy control. We learned a lot about what happened, what has been done, and what should be done in the following 40 years or longer while being overwhelmed by the sight. What I appreciate most about this tour is that we visited so many different places, such as deserted residential areas, fishing ports, schools, newly opened train stations, shopping center and community facilities, etc. Our guide took us farms in the evacuation area and related us to the locals who kindly shared their horrendous experiences, their honest views and hopes. We even met a young lady who moved from outside to Fukushima and started her family there. All these gave us the chance to see the reality that has been happening in almost 10 years in multi-angled ways with no bias. I highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Japan and local Japanese as well. Join the overnight tour if possible.:)

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!
